Medusa and polyp - question

Post by felicious » Sat Mar 17, 2007 7:50 pm

I am working on a biology I homework assignment, and am wavering on my answer to a particular question.
A medusa typically has more specialized organs for movement and response than a polyp does. Why might this be the case? I'm taking into consideration how the lifestyle of a medusa differs from that of most polyps...
Any help is appreciated.

Thank you. :)

I think my hint would be sessile vs mobile - just follow up your initial instincts.
