Phylum Ponifera

photo 3-1

I found this sponge in the lake that it’s near the NC and SC border. I took this picture around 2:00pm.

Since I wasn’t able to get a closer look, I can only classify this to the phylum ponifera.

Fun Fact!

According to Animal Diversity, “many species contain toxic substances, probably to discourage predators.” (http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich.edu/accounts/Porifera/)
