Tunicates This 2 Tunicates are small in size, less than 1 cm in height.<br />
Usually, they are found in a cluster or colony.<br />
This one is translucent in colour with specks of whites.<br />
<br />
They are marine filter feeders with a water-filled, sac-like body structure and two tubular openings, known as siphons, through which they draw in and expel water. During their respiration and feeding, they take in water through the incurrent (or inhalant) siphon and expel the filtered water through the excurrent (or exhalant) siphon. Most adult tunicates are sessile and are permanently attached to rocks or other hard surfaces on the ocean floor; others, such as salps, doliolids and pyrosomes, swim in the pelagic zone of the sea as adults. Various species are commonly known as sea squirts, sea pork, sea livers, or sea tulips. Anilao,Geotagged,Philippines,Tunicates,Winter Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
