:  Sponges
Body Form: Sponges produce spicules which are their identifying feature. Spicules function to support their soft bodies. They also produce the universal animal protein - collagen. Their bodies are porous with numerous incurrent pores and a few larger excurrent pores.
Diet: Sponges are filter feeders, moving water through their porous bodies to trap the microplankton it contains.
Natural History: Sponges are the simplest animals on earth. They invented cell to cell communication and their bodies are little more than a colony of cells with little cell specialization. Many are symbiotic with fish, corals, bristleworms, or other animals. Microplankton must be supplied in the aquarium for sponges to thrive.
