The sponge diet isn't at all what you eat. The food is mainly bacteria and phytoplankton. Being omnivores, this organism eats plants and animals. Sponges eat and breath through holes in their scrungy skin called pores.
Sponges are found worldwide. Mostly found in shallow saltwater. Sponges are polyps with a scrungy outer layer so some live together in a colony. Also, only 20 species live in freshwater.
You will be shocked to know that sponges are hermaphrodites which means they are both male and female! A sponge's body structure is very...confusing. Sponges come in all shapes and sizes but some can be 6 feet tall! Sponges are all colors of the rainbow! Some can be green, some red, some blue, some yellow, some orange, some brown. As a matter of fact, bath sponges are really exoskeletons of sponges.
