  1. It may surprise you to learn that colonial organisms really exist! The portuguese man-‘o-war is one famous example; each individual is composed of many zooids (ZOH-oids) which start life as an independent polyp but eventually combine into a single individual. There are several different types of polyp, each specializing to form a different part of the adult such as the gasbag, each tentacle, or the digestive polyps. The component zooids share nutrients among them, but unlike Bem, they cannot split up once they have fused.
