Tuning Fork Bryozoan

Bryozoans are closely related to corals and anemones. Beautiful and lace-like, these are aquatic, invertebrate animals. Like coral, they are minute, and colonial – typically measuring .5mm. Since the animals themselves live within the rigid calcified structure, what we see are their colonies. 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!
