Scaled collection of drawings of Giant Barrel Sponge in various views

The best place to find the Giant barrel sponge (Xestospongia muta) is on the Caribbean coral reefs. You can identify it by its brownish-red or brownish-gray barrel-shaped structure with an osculum at the apex. The giant barrel sponge has a hard or stony texture that is rugged, irregular, or rough. This large and firm sponge is a filter feeder and is dioecious. Of all the animals in their environment, the giant barrel sponge has the greatest volume and highest density cover. Besides, it is among the few benthic animals that live long.

Porifera, or sponges, are multicellular organisms with pores that filter water. Most sponges live in marine environments, brackish and freshwater environments. Sponges were the first creatures to branch off of the evolutionary tree, which means they are the sister to all other living creatures.
