Physical Characters : Predatory tunicates live anchored along the deep sea canyon walls and seafloor, waiting for tiny animals to drift or swim into their cavernous hoods. These are normally upto to 5 inches across (13 cm).
If you've ever seen a Venus flytrap capture an insect, you have a clue as to how a predatory tunicate eats. Its mouthlike hood is quick to close when a small animal drifts inside. Once the tunicate catches a meal, it keeps its trap shut until it's ready to eat again.
Distribution : Mostly these are distributed in Monterey Canyon at depths of 600-3,300 feet (183-1,000 meters).
Food : These are mostly eating zooplankton and tiny animals.
