How do muscles eat?



  1. 0 Votes

    Mussels are filter-feeders; they feed on plankton and other microscopic sea creatures which are free-floating in seawater. A mussel draws water in with it’s incurrent siphon, where it is then brought into the branchial chamber by the cilia. The wastewater exits through the excurrent siphon, and the labial palps finally funnel the food into the mouth, where digestion begins.
