The Amazing Sponge
Joey Del Grande
Wow! Did you know the sponge moves 1 mm or less a day. It is true that they move that little each day. Also, the sponge can get lifted up off the ground and move with the current. The sponge reproduces in an interesting way, has a unique appearance and loves to eat tiny animals.
The sponge reproduces in a unique way. Sperm out of its hole in its head. Then the sperm floats through the water until it hits another sponge. That other sponge makes a larva that larva floats through the water for a few days until it hits a rock.
The sponges height can be a few mm or 2 meters. some sponges can look a little like a coral sometimes. Sponges are usually 2 feet. The sponge has tons of pores and does not move a lot. Sponges don’t have any organs
Do you know the sponge has a fish flow through the it then the sponge suffocates the fish and eats it for food? The sponge also gets its food off of coral. The organism eats tiny fish that flow through it, and eats plankton. That is where it gets its nutrients.
In conclusion, the sponge reproduces by shooting sperm and then waiting for it to reach another sponge, they can be as tiny as 2mm or almost as long as 2 meters and it eats small animals in the water. The sponge looks like a simple organism but is really complex. Maybe the next time you see a sponge you will look at it differently.
