Caption: Verongia sponge (Verongia aerophoba). Sponges are the most primitive of the multicellular animals, lacking organs and true body tissues. They form a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colours. They feed by filtering plankton as water passes through pores in their bodies. Photographed in the Atlantic, off the Canary Islands.
