Footage Of Sponges Pumping Water

A video has landed online years ago that undoubtedly deserves more views.

To date, it has accumulated just over 100,000 in five years, and in it we can see how the water in the sea is pumped by sponges.

Sponges are multicellular organisms that have bodies full of pores and channels allowing water to circulate through them, consisting of jelly-like mesohyl sandwiched between two thin layers of cells. In the adult state, almost all sponges are attached, and most species do not have a distinct shape.

In the experiment recorded by a group of divers, they dropped a harmless dye into the water. With the help of dye, viewers were able to see how useful sponges filter water.

If you've ever wondered how sponges pump water, then you have the answer in the palm of your hand. Take a look at the scene from years ago that went viral over the web these days!
