What is the role of Choanocytes and Amoebocytes in a sponge?

  • Amoebocytes can be found helping with digestion by serving as food delivery drivers. Choanocytes (not an amoebocyte but a different type of cell) are flagellated cells that capture and digest food in sponges. Once inside a food vacuole, amoebocytes pick up and carry the food to other cells in the sponge.
