Sponge It an Animal.
Asked to describe a sponge, 9 per
•bns out of 10 would say that it is a
vegetable growth of the ocean, but
such is not the case, for it is an
animal. Sponges live thlr own lives
£d eat their own food as other ani
ils do. The separate existence of
• sponge begins when a tiny particle
qyentually attaches Itself to a piece of
rack, and from that home It seeks its
qwn livelihood. The food of infant
sponges consists of yelk cells, which
contain a form of nourishment. Later,
as the sponge grows, it requires some
thing more solid, and this is brought
kg the currents.
