Qualities and places of growth of the natural sponge
The natural sponge (Hippospongia equina) is represented in all oceans, from the Caribbean Sea to the Arctic Ocean. The task of sponges in the ocean is to act as a natural filter. The sponge pumps water through itself and feeds on plankton. In total, there are more than 7,500 different species of natural sponges, which can range in size from a few millimeters to three meters. Depending on the temperature, depth and flow of the water, sponges grow large in half a year to five years.
