Is it a plant or is it an animal? At first sight, this leafy bryozoan looks like clusters of algae. But, in actual fact, it’s a colony of millions of small animals. Each individual creature lives in a honeycomb-shaped chamber and swirls plankton towards itself with its fan-shaped tentacles. Bryozoans grow by forming buds. It takes just four days for a new chamber to form.
