Spongivore


Spongivore

Régime alimentaire basé sur la consommation d'éponges. Très peu de vertébrés sont spongivores. Bon nombre d'éponges sont très toxiques pour la plupart des organismes. L'éventail des toxines étant large, les spongivores se contentent de consommer un petit nombre d'espèces d'éponge.
