Ancestor, or cousin?

Today's offering, inspired by the excellent Science Times article on cnidarians. Apparently, they aren't as primitive as they look, sharing many genes with vertebrates such as ourselves. The closing lines of the article are choice:
"As strange as it may seem, gazing at a jellyfish in an aquarium is a lot like looking in the mirror."

Whipping up this little sketch made me realize that one a day might not be entirely realistic. A little more time spent will pay off in the long run.
