There aren't many creatures as safe and chill as the humble sea sponge, right? Well, not so fast! It turns out there's a whole family of carnivorous sponges that trap and eat small animals using spines and migrating stomaches!

Special thanks to The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. Check out their video about these sponges here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJeyO...
