How Much You Know about Kingdom Animalia, Subkingdom Eumetazoa, Phylum Coelenterata or Cnidaria Trivia Quiz

Let's Start

Coelenterates are aquatic mostly marine except Hydra and they mostly found in colonies and some are solitary. They have a tissue-level organization. They have a mouth but no head or brain. They are acoelomates and they exhibit blind sac body plans. They have an incomplete digestive system and they respire through the body surface. They show radial symmetry except for Meridium, it shows biradial symmetry. Nematoblast or Cnidoblast cells are the characteristic cells of this phylum. Nematoblast cells are formed by intestinal cells and later on when fully developed migrate to tentacles. They are stimulated mechanically and chemically. Once discharges they cannot be used again so they are merged back to the gastrovascular cavity where they are replaced by fresh nematoblast after every 48 hours. These cells are absent on basal disc and they inject poison to paralyze the prey. So, take this quiz and know more about phylum Coelenterata.
