Tunicate

I have a sister that is a phylum Cephalochordata

Hi! I am a Tunicate. Friends call me Urochordata

Tunicates

we look like frog tadpoles as showen in the picture to the right. I was found in 1816 by Lamarck. I'm mostly found in the all oceans around the world, and most of us love shallow water above 200 meters. .....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

My interests include sticking to ocean floor and moving with the waves. Most of us adults are sessile and attach to rocks or similarly sutable surfaces like the ocean floor.There are about 3,000 species of us here in the ocean. We are commonly known as the sea squirts and sea pork and sea tulips. Our name comes from the tunic that surrounds our body.

I love to eat planktonic particles by filtering sea water through my body.
