The biological world is an ideal place for seeking inspiration for developing mathematical optimization algorithms. In this paper we propose two hybrid stochastic optimization algorithms that bear resemblance to the sexual reproduction cycle of Jellyfish and asexual reproductive cycle of species of Hydra. The performance of these two algorithms are investigated against other common optimization algorithms on a set of benchmark optimization problems. The results show that the proposed algorithms perform well.
