Sir Lancelet by thehurricanes Sir Lancelet by thehurricanes
That's kind of a bad joke. =P

I think reading about the Round Table Knights in British Literature class and studying about the evolution of vertebrates in AP Biology class at the same time isn't a bad idea.


The lancelet is a small, eyeless marine creature. It's considered the common ancestor of all vertebrates. Ask Ms. Wiki if you have questions about it.

lol good joke ;) i totaly agreee. the creature needs a gill to grow up (it was the slime production which costs to much energy to become bigger if i remember it right ^^).

Thank you! :hug: Glad that someone thinks it's a good joke.

Well, I don't know much about lancelet ecology. I only know Chinese people eat them. =P So lancelets do not have real gills? What is the slime production?

The gill slits of the lancelet are really primitive compared to the gills of today living fish and different in they´re function.
The lanclet uses it more to feed himself, thats why another organ produces slime (mucus may be the better word) which´ll surround the gill slits and so will the muscus surround the incoming foodparticles and then it´ll digest it :)
The German word for gill slits is "Kiemendarm" this describes imao the function and very well, because it contains next to the word gill=Kiemen the word Darm=part of the digestive system.
And because the way the lanclet feed himself is so expensive in energy (producing all the muscus) it is probably the reason for this creature of not growing bigger :)


hope i could help you in understanding :)

Wow! Thanks a lot. :D That's very informative.
It's interesting that how lancelets actually use gills to forage food.
