Tuning Fork Bryozoan

Bryozoans aka “moss animals” are tiny creatures that live in colonies. The beautiful lace-like structures we see are the exoskeletons they build, similar to corals. These tiny, aquatic and invertebrate bryozoans are only about .5 mm and live within the skeletons they build. Bryozoa feed by filtering plankton from seawater via a crown of tentacles that they can retract.  However, unlike corals, bryozoans have a ‘lid’ that can protect them from unwanted attention! There are both fresh water and salt water bryozoans, and take a wide range of forms, from the gelatinous fresh water colonies to the hard calcified types we find on Hawaiian reefs. The Tuning Fork Bryozoan is one of our favorites – delicate, and tiny, with its detail only visible when enlarged in a photo!
