Azure Vase Sponge
Transcript of Azure Vase Sponge
S- Callyspongia plicifera supported "by a simple skeketon made of a network of protein fibers called spongin." http://www.biology.iastate.edu/Courses/211L/Porif/%20Porifindx.htm http://www.coral-reef-info.com/coral-reef-sponges.html (callyspongia plicifera) Sponges lack muscular, nervous, circulatory, and digestive systems. Alough the sponge does not have a circulatory system they have amoeboid cells within their wall that transport nutrients from cell to cell and they act like the circulatory system for them. A vase sponge is... are not symmetrical one of the most colorful sponges in the world. capable of growing up to 23 inches tall. After "digesting" their food, the waste is excreted thru the Osculum located on the top of the sponge. Since sponges are sessile, they are suspension feeders. (Sponges eat particles suspended in the water.) capable of regenerating lost body parts. Reproduction Sponges can reproduce either sexually or asexually. "Sponges can reproduce asexually by forming small buds that break off and live seperatly." Sponges are hermaphrodite, meaning that they have both sexes.

Sponges rarely fertilize themselves.
