A sponge might not look like much, but these simple animals with no brain or ability to move have lived on Earth for hundreds of millions of years. They can hunt prey and spawn, and Jonathan demonstrates how in this fascinating segment about the biology of sponges! ********************************************************************** If you like Jonathan Bird's Blue World, don't forget to subscribe!

Cleaning sponges are synthetic these days, but they used to come from the ocean. Back in the days before we had synthetic sponges for housework, cleaning sponges did come from the ocean. They were harvested by hard-hat divers walking along the ocean floor in heavy weighted boots with a rake-like tool to pluck the sponges off the bottom. It was a dangerous and difficult job. Bagfuls of sponges were lifted to the boat above. Immediately, the crew set to work cleaning the sponges. Then they were hung to air dry. After days or weeks at sea, when the boat was full of sponges, they were taken to shore, where they were auctioned to the highest bidder. Finally they were trimmed, sorted and sold to the public. Natural sponges are still harvested in nearly the same way today, but the synthetic sponge has spared the lives of countless ocean sponges! While an ocean sponge looks something like a weird plant, it's actually an animal. In fact, sponges are among the simplest multi-cellular animals on Earth. They live on the bottom of the ocean, attached to a surface and never moving because they can't walk or swim. Some are quite colorful, while others are drab. They also come in all shapes and sizes. There are tube sponges, vase sponges, barrel sponges, rope sponges, encrusting sponges and many other types. Sponges live from the frigid waters of the arctic and Antarctic, to the tropics. On many coral reefs, sponges dominate the sea floor and the drop off. One of the most common sponges on coral reefs is the barrel sponge. Barrel sponges grow to epic proportions, getting larger than a person! Although sponges can't walk or swim, they can feed. They do it by filtering tiny plankton from the water. A sponge is covered with small pores, called ostia, which lead to a system of internal canals and eventually out to one or more larger holes, called oscula. Within the canals of the sponge, chambers are lined with specialized cells called choanocytes, or collar cells. The collar cells have a sticky, funnel shaped collar and a hairlike whip, called a flagellum. The collar cells serve two purposes. First, they beat their flagella back and forth like fans to move water through the sponge. The water brings in nutrients and oxygen, while it carries out waste and carbon dioxide. Second, the sticky collars of the collar cells pick up tiny bits of planktonic food brought in with the water. Sponges are very effective filter feeders, since they are able to capture and eat particles as small as bacteria as well as much larger particles. They might not look like they are doing much, but a simple demonstration shows how effectively sponges can pump water. On a reef in the Caribbean, I make a dive with a syringe filled with a non-toxic dye called fluorescein. By squirting it around the base of some sponges, we can observe how the water is moving by watching what the dye does. Within only seconds, the dye is pumped through the sponges along with the water. As you can see, a sponge is a pretty good water pump, and also a good strainer. Any plankton that goes in with the water, won't come back out through the osculum. Tube sponges are even more spectacular to observe. They pump the dye so furiously that they look like a collection of miniature smoke stacks! Since sponges can't get together to reproduce, they spawn in a way similar to coral. The sperm is released into the water column by the male sponge and finds its way to the female sponges, where fertilization occurs internally. Eventually, the planktonic larvae are released from the female sponge and float around in the water column as plankton for only a few days. They then settle down and start growing. Sponges don't have many predators. There is not much nutritional value in a sponge and they're hard to digest. Hence, very few animals can eat sponges. But something was clearly eating this sponge! A sea turtle is the culprit. Sea turtles are one of the principal predators of sponges, along with a few species of fish and some invertebrates like nudibranchs.

Sea sponge could be the first animal on Earth
New genetic analyses led by MIT researchers confirm that sea sponges are the source of a curious molecule found in rocks that are 640 million years old. These rocks significantly predate the Cambrian explosion — the period in which most animal groups took over the planet, 540 million years ago — suggesting that sea sponges may have been the first animals to inhabit the Earth.

Sea Sponge Facts: 10 facts about Sea Sponges
Here are 10 facts about sea sponges to help gain a better understanding of this fascinating creature of the deep sea. The corresponding post is here http://goo.gl/0u3eYy Synopsis 10. Sea sponges are animals which neither have neither a central nervous system of a brain. 9. They are found on the floor of the ocean attaching them leaves to solid rocks. They do not have the ability move around 8. Sea sponges appear as dark in water as they have a dark membrane that covers them which is like a skin for them. This gives them good cover for the skeleton. 7. They are able to reproduce by coupling up with other sea sponges. A male sperm is ejected by the male and is caught by the female and the fertilization of her eggs begins. When they are ready tiny larvae are ejected and they settle on the ocean floor and will grow into sea sponges 6. They feed by consuming water, ocean particles and plankton and then filtering the water out and swallowing the food that they need 5. Sea sponges get their oxygen from the flowing water 4. Around the world there are around 5000 species of sea sponge that exist 3. They have amazing powers of regeneration and have the ability to reform parts of the bodies that get broken off. Even more mind blowing The pieces that are broken off can also settle somewhere else and form into a clone of their parent sponge 2. When they are harvested, those collecting them leave the roots intact so that they can regenerate and grow back to their original form 1. When they are not harvested they have a lifespan of around 10 years in the wild.

Sea Sponges and Unity
Sea sponges are considered to be some of the simplest of multi-cellular animals on earth. They have neither a central nervous system nor a brain yet the various types of cells within a sea sponge are able to perform the many different functions necessary for life. One amazing characteristic of sea sponges is their ability to regenerate. They are able to rebuild parts of their body structure that have been broken off, but it goes far beyond this. There is an interesting experiment that has been performed in laboratories around the world that demonstrates the remarkable regenerative ability of this simple creature.

New Species of 'Killer Sea Sponges' Discovered
Four new species of 'killer' sea sponges have been discovered in the Pacific Ocean. Staffers from Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute or MBARI for short led the study behind the finding. Four new species of sea sponges have been discovered in the Pacific Ocean. Staffers from Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute or MBARI for short led the study behind the finding. The new species are considered to be 'killer sponges' because they're carnivorous. They are certainly beautiful marine life forms, but aside from their appearance is a cut-throat approach to surviving in the ocean where food is often scarce. The 'killer sponges' prey on amphipods, similar in size to shrimp or other similar small animals. While most sponges under the ocean's surface are filter feeders that utilize special cells equipped with miniscule, beating tails to lure in prey, these new species have a far more efficient technique. The 'killer sponges' are outfitted with wire-like hairs and hooks that essentially snatch up food. Those hooks allow them to catch larger crustaceans. After the prey has been captured, the 'killer sponges' digest the food over a course of several hours and in the end the only thing that's left in a sponge's grasp is a tiny shell. Lonny Lundsten, a senior research technician at MBARI and his team used remotely operated underwater vehicles to film the sponges intricately capturing their prey.

Could Antarctic Sea Sponges Save the Human Race?
The current crop of super bugs may be on their way to losing the super tag thanks to Antarctic sea sponges. Super bugs have been a growing problem for awhile, thanks in no small part to the misuse and overuse of the antibiotics people use every day. However, breakthrough has come from an unusual place: Antarctica. Researchers have found that a compound contained within a specific type of sea sponge there can kill 98.4% of MRSA-related bacteria. The sea sponge is called Dendrilla membranosa, and the new compound has been named darwinolide. Antarctica is one of the most extreme environments on Earth, and sea sponges have no physical protection such as a shell while living in an environment full of bacteria. This means that they have evolved to be extremely resilient, meaning they have the defenses capable of fending off even the strongest of bacteria. http://www.geek.com/science/antarctic-sea-sponges-may-save-the-human-race-from-super-bugs-1659236/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Four new species of carnivorous sponges: Adapting to life in the deep sea
This video describes four new species of carnivorous sponges from the Northeast Pacific Ocean that were discovered by MBARI scientists. Carnivorous feeding in sponges is an adaption to the food poor deep-sea environment, where filter feeding -- the typical way sponges feed -- is energetically expensive. Instead, these sponges trap small crustaceans with microscopic hooks. Once trapped, sponge cells mobilize, engulf the prey, and rapidly digest it. In addition to consuming small crustacean prey, one of these species appears to be consuming methane-oxidizing chemosynthetic bacteria. For more information visit: MBARI's news release: http://www.mbari.org/news/news_releases/2014/killersponges/killersponges-release.html Lundsten, L., Reiswig, H.M., and Austin, W.C. (2014).

Deep-sea sponges with a killer appetite
When most people think of sponges, they think of squishy, soap-filled kitchen sponges, or perhaps the graceful barrel sponges that grow around coral reefs. But in the dark depths of the ocean, some sponges have evolved into deadly predators, which trap and digest small, helpless prey. In a new paper in the journal Zootaxa, led by MBARI researcher Lonny Lundsten, a team of scientists describe three new species of predatory sponges that live in deep water off the coast of California and in the Gulf of California. Like tiny beach umbrellas sticking out of the deep seafloor, the new species of sponges consist of thin vertical stalks capped by parasol-like disks with “numerous long filaments radiating in all directions from the parasol edge,“ according to the authors of the Zootaxa article. Two of the newly named sponges were recorded on videotape by MBARI’s remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) at depths of about 2,500 to 4,100 meters. All three of the new sponges are members of the genus Cladorhiza. These three new species join three previously known species of Cladorhiza sponges along the West Coast of North America. One of the new sponges, Cladorhiza kensmithi, lives on the muddy seafloor off Central and Northern California. This sponge was named after MBARI deep-sea biologist Ken Smith, who has spent over 40 years studying deep-sea animals. A large number of C. kensmithi sponges were observed at “Station M,” one of Smith’s long-term research sites off the coast of Central California. These sponges are about 20 cm (8 inches) tall, and use root-like rhizoids to secure their stalks to muddy bottom. When they were first observed during MBARI ROV dives, researchers gave them the nickname “Sputnik sponges” because their filaments and large, conspicuous antennae disks looked like antennae on a satellite. As we continue to explore and study the deep sea we find bizarre, and often beautiful, adaptions to life in this harsh environment which never cease to amaze.

The harp sponge: an extraordinary new species of carnivorous sponge
In this video we describe a new species of carnivorous sponge, Chondrocladia lyra from the deep-sea off California. C. lyra is called the harp sponge because its basic structure, called a vane, is shaped like a harp or lyre. Each vane consists of a horizontal branch supporting several parallel, vertical branches. Clinging with root-like "rhizoids" to the soft, muddy sediment, the harp sponge captures tiny animals that are swept into its branches by deep-sea currents. Typically, sponges feed by straining bacteria and bits of organic material from the seawater they filter through their bodies. However, carnivorous harp sponges snare their prey—tiny crustaceans—with barbed hooks that cover the sponge's branching limbs. Once the harp sponge has its prey in its clutches, it envelops the animal in a thin membrane, and then slowly begins to digest it. The harp sponge's unusual shape and exposure to currents may also help it to reproduce more effectively. The swollen balls at the tip of the sponge's upright branches produce packets of sperm. These sperm packets are released into passing currents and are captured on the branches of other nearby sponges. The sperm then works its way from the packets into the host sponge to fertilize its eggs. As the fertilized eggs mature, these contact sites swell up, forming bulges part way up the host sponge's branches (see photo).

Natural Sea Sponge
In the first few unhurried years of moving to the Bahamas I would spend more time under the water than above. The sponge was one of the many natural wonders to be admired, alongside the nosy barracuda and the uninterested nurse shark. In the less tropical waters of my shower I enjoy a luxurious moment with this natural sponge and my gentle body wash. Our sponges grow in an array of different conditions - from sand and rocks to coral and nautical ropes. The difference in physical appearance and texture can be attributed to the range of different surfaces that these sponges are growing on. Of course that’s why we love them so much.

Jade & Pearl Reusable Sea Sponges Unboxing
Full review: https://reusablemenstrualcup.com/tampons/jade-and-pearl-sea-pearl-sponge-tampon/ Jade and Pearl Sea Pearls (formerly known as sea sponge tampons) are an eco-friendly period product. The main use for them is to have sex during your period. Although you can use them as your sole source of period protection, they do require a bit of work to keep them clean and sanitary, which is the main negative to this product. Every day or two, you have to clean them with a natural soap and water, or soak them in water with some tea tree oil, vinegar, etc. That's more work than most people are willing to do! However, if you want to have period sex, then these are one of the few options available to you. Sex trade workers have known about these things for years. The other options to consider are the reusable Ziggy Cup, disposable Soft Cup or Flex Disc and Softtampons. We'll try out Jade & Pearl Sea Sponges and let you know how it goes. Are they more hassle than they're worth? Or, the best thing for period sex since sliced bread. Stay tuned for the Jade and Pearl Reusable Sea Sponge Review.
