Cnidocytes - Specialised Cells Biology project on Cnidocytes, a type of venomous cell unique to the phylum Cnidaria (corals, sea anemones, hydrae, jellyfish etc.). It evolved as a means to catch prey and defend from predators, despite these creatures being morphologically simple, lacking a skeleton and usually being sessile. A cnidocyte fires a structure which contains the toxin, from a characteristic sub-cellular organelle called a cnidocyst (or cnida or nematocyst). This is for instance responsible for the stings delivered by jellyfish.

Coral Grows Faster than Thought 2 Peter 3:4 . . . and saying, 'Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.' Many people know that, despite its appearance, coral is actually a tiny animal. Even a small coral growth may be made up of billions of tiny animals, each living inside its limestone skeleton. What many people don't know is that coral cannot live without the help of algae-a plant. Thousands of one-celled algae live in the tiny stomach of each coral polyp. The polyp requires the waste products of the algae to complete its nutrition requirements and to get the calcium with which it builds reefs. In return, the polyp's stomach provides an ideal protected living place for the algae. Incidentally, the wonderful colors in living coral come from the algae in each polyp's stomach. Evolutionists have said that it must take millions of years for the tiny polyps to build large coral reefs, like the 2000-kilometer-long Great Barrier Reef in Australia. The Great Barrier Reef, incidentally, is considered the largest structure ever built by living organisms. However, it has now been shown that coral polyps can double their own weight in just over 10 days! As a result, the claim of millions of years for the age of the Great Barrier Reef has been reduced by a factor of 40! Many of the long age figures claimed by evolutionists have had to be drastically revised downward as we have learned more about the creation. The ...

What Coral and Humans Share Coral Grows Faster than Thought - Corel Structure and action Each cnidocyte cell contains an organelle called a cnidocyst (or nematocyst), which comprises a bulb-shape capsule containing a coiled hollow thread-like structure attached to it. The externally-oriented side of the cell also has a hair-like trigger called a cnidocil. When the trigger is activated, the shaft of the cnidocyst penetrates the target organism, and the hollow thread is everted into it. This discharge takes no more than a few microseconds, and is able to reach accelerations [gravitational force] of about 40000 Gs. Recent research suggests the process to occur as fast as 700 nanoseconds, thus reaching an acceleration of up to 5410000 Gs. After penetration, the toxic content of the nematocyst is injected into the target organism. The rapid activity of the injected neurotoxins immediately paralyzes the mobile prey, thus allowing the sessile cnidarian to devour it. Psalm 95:6 "O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker." According to the theory of evolution, all life is related. There is claimed to be a hierarchy of rising complexity from the earliest simple organisms to man. The earliest organisms are said to include corals, sea anemones and jellyfish that thrived 500 million years ago. These early creatures eventually led to the first creatures to move onto land, and worms were among them. Based on this supposed evolutionary history ...

Anemonefish Anemonefish of the genera Premnas and Amphiprion maintain a symbiotic relationship with sea anemones. The sea anemones produces toxins, which are transmitted via the nematocyst cells in their tentacles for defense and prey capture *. The fish have a resistance to these toxins allowing them to live amongst the tentacles of the sea anemone. The anemonefish forms an obligate association with their host which provides a safe location for oviposition (laying of eggs) and protection from predators (Allen 1972). In return anemonefish have been observed to defend its host from its main predator, the chaetodontid butterflyfish. Sea anemone toxins can be divided two types: those that damage membranes by forming pores (cytolysins); and, those that affect nervous structures (neurotoxins that disrupt ion channels; Kem 1988). Resistance to these toxins has evolved in some species of Amphiprion but is not a major attribute allowing them to live amongst the stinging tentacles (Mebs 1994). The main factor attributing to resistance is the skin's mucus layer of the fish (Mebs 1994). Group size living within an anemone commonly increases linearly with the host's size and residents set an upper limit by evicting low-rank subordinates and preventing recruitment of additional subordinates (Buston 2003). The following footage shows several anemonefish and their association with a sea anemone. Note that one segment of the film shows an anemonefish defending against an intruding fish. Credits ...
Zooplankton Prey Zooxanthellae provide their coral hosts with a proportion of their required energy (Barnes & Hughes, 1999). As well as gaining energy from their symbiotic zooxanthellae, many corals feed at night by consuming zooplankton prey (Barnes 1987, Sebens et al. 1996, Ferrier-Pages et al. 2003). By extending their tentacles equipped with stinging nematocyst cells, corals are able to capture the zooplankton in the water column. The trapped prey is then transported to the centre of the polyps' oral disk and ingested through the gastrovascular cavity. In addition to capturing zooplankton, many corals also collect fine particles in mucus film or strands covering their surface. The mucus and trapped particles are then transported to the mouth by the cilia at the coral tissue surface (Barnes & Hughes, 1999). In this video, corals are using their nematocyst-laden tentacles to capture food particles from the water column, drawing them towards the mouth for ingestion.

Nematocyst - A Revelation .
Hydra Fusca polyp in my Aquarium. This video is taken with my Canon EOS 1000D. I set it up for remote shooting and captured my screen. Sometimes the video gets really blurry because I had to use manual focus. Also the video speed is 2 times the normal speed. Hydra is included in the phylum Cnidaria, along with sea anemones, jellyfish and coral polyps, and is one of the few freshwater members of this group. One feature all members of the Cnidaria have in common is the possession of thread cells or cnidia or nematocysts -- tiny stinging cells located in the body and tentacles which discharge a paralyzing poison into prey organisms, enabling their capture and ingestion. The nematocysts of Hydra are similar to those of the marine stinging jellyfish which periodically invade beaches, causing injury and sometimes death to humans. The Hydra's body is a hollow tube consisting of two layers of cells separated by an unstructured gelatinous layer. The outer, clear layer of cells is called the epidermis or ectoderm, and generates the nematocysts. The inner layer is called the endoderm or gastrodermis, and produces the enzymes which digest the Hydra's food. The separating layer is called the mesoglea. It is a gel of various secretions and proteins, containing loose cells not organised into any kind of tissue. The Hydra's tentacles are hollow, tubular extensions of these three layers. Many members of the Cnidaria establish symbiotic relationships with zoochlorellae which impart a green colour to the polyp. Coral polyps ...

The Stinging Sea Nettle Beautiful colorful sea creature filmed in HD quality! Enjoy:) The stinging sea nettle (Chrysaora) is a genus of particularly large true sea jellies (Scyphozoans). The name may refer to the Atlantic sea nettle or East Coast sea nettle (Chrysaora quinquecirrha), a species of sea nettle that inhabits particularly Atlantic estuaries. The name sea nettle may also refer to the Pacific sea nettle or West Coast sea nettle (Chrysaora fuscescens) (pictured to the right), another related species that is endemic to the Northeast Pacific Ocean. It is a common coastal species found along the west coast of North America from California to Alaska. The Atlantic sea nettle is a bell-shaped invertebrate, usually semi-transparent and with small, white dots and reddish-brown stripes. Sea nettles without stripes have a bell that appears white or opaque. The nettle's sting is rated from "moderate" to "severe" and can be pernicious to smaller prey; it is not, however, potent enough to cause human death, except by allergic reaction. While the sting is not particularly harmful, it can cause moderate discomfort to any individual stung. The sting can be effectively neutralized by misting vinegar over the affected area. This keeps unfired nematocysts from firing and adding to the discomfort. The sea nettle is radially symmetrical, marine, and carnivorous. Its mouth is located at the center of one end of the body, which opens to a gastrovascular cavity that is used for digestion. It has tentacles that ...

Hydrocorals Hydrocorals are not true corals, but are member of the class Hydrozoa. Like their close relatives, hydrocorals are also equipped with stinging nematocyst cells that release a virulent toxin when they come in contact with another organism (Wittle et al., 1974). Competitive, hydrocorals in the genus Millepora are often conspicuous and form spatially dominant colonies in reefs (Witman, 1988). The following footage demonstrate the competitive ability of a Millepora spp. colony that has pierced the tissues of an adjacent soft coral.

Jellyfish reproduction How do jellyfish reproduce? Jellyfish are marvellous creatures with a gelatinous body. It is easy to recognise jellyfish! They have a convex portion called umbrella with numerous tentacles hanging from its margin. The manubrium is a tubular structure hanging from the centre of the umbrella ending with an opening which acts as both mouth and ***. The jellyfish of this video belong to the Phylum Cnidaria and the class Scyphozoa. The word "cnidarians" originates from greek and means "nettle". This name is referred to their ability to inflict painful stings by means of stinging organelles called cnidocysts, contained in the epiderm. This picture shows numerous cnidocysts on the surface of a jellyfish tentacle. These organelles contain a coiled thread often bearing spines. Here discharged cnidocysts and everted threads are showed. The cnidocyst discharge is triggered for example when the human skin or a prey are in contact with a tentacle, the thread is ejected and penetrates in the victim and a toxin is injected in its tissues. How do jellyfish reproduce? Let's see the moonjelly's (Aurelia sp.) life cycle. The life cycle of Cnidarians shows two main stages, the polyp and the medusa (or jellyfish). The polyp lives attached to the bottom while the jellyfish is free-swimming. The polyp presents mouth and tentacles direct upward while in jellyfish they are direct downward. This video shows a polyp few millimetres high. The polyp waits for an imprudent prey, for example a small ...
