Porifera (Sponges)

Parent Category: Animal Life
Sponges are very diverse invertebrates that live under the sea. They come in a large variety of colors, shapes and structural complexities.
I would think you would find one in the bathroom or by the kitchen sink. Phylum porifera is a sponge.
sponges do not neccesarily drink, but they do absorb a lot of water which can be enough to cover any thirst it has.
Sponges, by themselves, generally do not have any smell at all.  Most live in quiet, clear waters, because sediment stirred up by  waves or currents would block their pores, making it difficult for  them to feed and breathe. Hence, due to their stagnant habitat,  they often develop a peculiar,...
The answer isn't going to be a very specific one as it's more of an abstract idea. See most sponges are made of protein fiber strands kind of like threads. Many of the surfaces in the ocean are porous so sea sponges dont have a foot or anything like that, their bottom is made out of the same stuff...
The sea sponge removes waste through osmotic transfer with the  water inside the spongocoel and this water is then passed through  the osculum.
In the toiletries section.
Yes, there are such things as sponges. They make very good cleaning supplies for places like kitchens and bathrooms. They also provide a little variety of ways you can clean places. Sponges generally always have a rough side and a softer side for cleaning easily. I think you are talking about sea...
whoever thinks that sponge's have an age are stupid cause they don't have an age and whoever watches spongebob squarepants are gay and retardsthis is my answersponges don't have an age
Sheilding them from Predaors,Food,A Safe Place to Keep There Egg,s
By sucking in their food or eating it
it is either sexual or asexual reproduction. Sexual reproduction is internal.
Well sponges are very squishy and absorbent and that's pretty much it:)
  The barrel sponge can reproduce it reproduces asexually it buds off and then where ever it lands it sticks there grows roots and does it all over again
  Well if you are talking about a sponges life classification then it would be benthos, but if you are talking about the ocean zone then i don't know, i was trying to find that too, I know it's in my science book, but I left mine at school.
spongin and spicules are the sponges body support and defence
All sponges mostly reproduce asexually. They grow develop as buds  from the parent sponge, which consequently forms a complete mature  sponge later. Hence, through budding, they go on increasing in  size, and spreading over larger areas.
Porifera means "porous" or "holey", which is pretty much all a sponge is - a bunch of holes that water passes through, bringing their food right inside them since they trap tiny particles in the water to eat.
To answer your question no sponges do not hibernate
The seven levels of the yellow tube sponge are math, science, social studies, music, language arts, English, and computers.
Yellow tube sponge/Sulphur sponge Aplysina fistularis Yellow tube sponges get their name from their hollow, chimney-like body form. They pump huge quantities of water through their bodies, filtering out the tiny particles on which they feed. Statistics The tubes are at least 60cm (24in) high....
    Please answer this it is for a project I need it fast
No, they are acoelomates.
Lophocytes, Collencytes and Rhabdiferous
the have no bones fool. but they are still epic >:¦0
through yuhr nose .....................lol through the little hole look at it really close_MissSquarePants
because it is not bilaterally simmetrical.
most plants are bilaterally symmetrical except for porifera
spongebob squarepants is on a kids program and is not real! anyway he eats kraby pattys!!!
not really...,but their able to float. Yes they're able to float but technically technically that isn't "swimming"
Decorations and sometimes kitchen sponges.
They Filtear Feed and through there Reperitory systems they filter out the oxygen into there sestems ,simalar to gils on fish, where the sponges cells then go through a process called cellualar repiration in which thier cells use and reuse energy of the movement of the atoms to produces ATP.
this is Zachary Stevens and it is true.
It depends on the type of sponge.
only 4000 minutes and three seconds real answer is its habitat is you can find it in the reef of any ocean
Cnidarians and sponges receive most of their food from filtering water; they would starve without water. Also, they would most likely crush themselves because of their body weight if they were on land.
no, they are asymmetrical
yes, yes it does.No, Sea sponges don't require and therefore lack, nerve cells, muscle cells or internal organs of any sort. Never the less, research at the University of California at Santa Barbara have discovered that one species of sea sponge, known as Amphimedon queenslandica, That synthesizes...
Because it filters in food for itself but also reproduces
This OS the process called budding. A new polyp will form from the part that broke off.
A human made sponge is called a sponge because humans used to use sea sponges.
What is a purple tube sponge what are you on?
Sponges, phylum porifera, have asymmetrical bodies.
Porifera: coextensive with the subkingdom Parazoa: sponges
Porifera are sponges, and many animals eat sponges, including nudibranchs and some specialized fish.
no....yes.....it can be and can't at the same time.....
half and half cause they do give sexually offsprings but they have to be a special sponge
Sponges are actually considered as animals because of the known species of the sea sponge.
They are filter feeders. They filter water through they're pores and extract the particles from the water.
I'm pretty sure they move but they might have a muscular foot to move. You might need to look on a different website or ask a teacher! Remember to be smart! :)
The Yellow Tube Sponge is a relatively large sponge (to  over 3 feet/1 m) that lives on   coral reefs  around the Caribbean Sea and its adjacent waters. The  common name is an accurate description of the species, with  individuals typically having a yellowish color (sometimes almost ...
it eats by absorbing nutrients..........mostly all sponges that live underwear eat that way. :D
The archeocytes is responsible for the high power of ergeneration in sponges,for instance if the sponge are wounded,the wound go heal very quick as a result of this archeocytes.ti is also responsible for the movement of food material in & out of sponges.
check the encyclopedia,internet, etc.
Many coral reef organisms eat yellow tube sponges like angelfishes, filefishes, cowfishes and spadefish. Also the Hawksbill sea turtle.
There are approximately 5,000- 10,000 known species of sea sponges. Different types of sponges live in different depths of waters and adapt to the surroundings accordingly.   The Tube Sponge is most common and is known for its long tubes that filter water. The Caribbean Fire Sponge has its own...
Sponges do not have segmented body. Sponges are a mass of tiny animals bound together into a poriferous body of different structures, like the giant barrel sponge.
Of the choices choanocytes, medusa, spicules, or gemmules, Medusa  is the option that is not associated with sponges.
Yes a sponge can be a carnivore, however others are not.
No,the organism is designed to be thin enough that the diffusion of oxygen is sufficient and can sustain life for the sponge
  No because it makes filter-feeding impossible for the sponges   No because it makes filter-feeding impossible for the sponges
Phylum Porifera sponges have radial symmetry.
In addition, animals are capable of locomotion or body movement by means of contractile ... Primitive phyla without a true coelom include the Porifera and ... They have the organ level of organization and are bilaterally symmetrical. ...
Yes, they are called spicules, not pores or spiracles as many people think.
Sponges are not solid, in their natural state they are jelly-like
Support is basically provided by the calciferous and siliceous  spicules it is covered with throughout. The spicules form the  skeletal framework of the sponge. Also. the sponge is attached to  the stratum via base, which adheres it to a fixed spot.
a sponge has a does not have a artery and a mollusk does, a sponge feeds on coral and marine life also and a mollusk a feeds on decaying matter : thanks for submitting this a awnser:-) P.s. I messed up on the top of my sentence:-( but that anwser is right I googled it, again thanks:-)
Sponges are sessile organisms during their adulthood, meaning they do not move. To feed, sponges have adapted a process known as "filter-feeding." Basically, small particles of food passing by in the water are taken in by the sponge and digested directly in the sponge's cell layers. The larvae also...
They eat bacteria and plankton by absorbing them
the cells that make up their bodies can live as single cells
a lot of sponges, like sponge who goes to my school is like hey im sponge and im like oh hey sponge and we laugh and stuff and its stuffin and stuff!
Since they are, well, SPONGES, their main purpose is to reproduce by budding, filter feed, and recover from damage by regrowing lost "limbs", if you can call it that.
it has to be yelow wit purpul dotz and grreeen enerwear
the Porifera, Cnidaria, Ctenophore, Platy helminthes, and Nematode phylums all exchange gas and eliminate waste through diffusion. They tend to be small and/or have a large surface-to-body ratio.
No, they are sponges. Actually they are the only animal phyla that does not have any "true tissues".
the body plan is its in a shape of a bowl or vase with spikes to protect itself!!!
Sponges play an important roll in aquatic ecosystems, acting to filter particles out of the water (especially bacteria), and forming a fairly substantial portion of thecoral reef biomass. Sponges are clearly the simplest of the conspicuous animal phyla, and thus are important subjects for...
