ABSTRACT
Sponge, a simple, aquatic animal that looks like a plant. The term is also used for the skeleton of certain types of these animals; the skeleton soaks up fluid easily. Most sponges live in warm water at shallow depths, although sponges are found in all oceans at various depths. There are also species of sponges that live in freshwater. Sponges usually occur in colonies. When young, they attach themselves to rocks, corals, shells, or other submerged objects. Some species live on sand or mud bottoms.
