    beauty!
    what direction is she going?

  • cguigand by cguigand scientist, admin

    the lobe are usually the forward part. they open up as the #lobate swims forward to engulf preys

    all ctenophores, beat the cilia of their comb rows (on the aboral pole-bottom left here) to move through the water-this guys going 'up'!

    i was confused by this too! the lobes are only for feeding like cguigand said. Thanks plankton portal for teaching me new things!
