This is why 'dog' has replaced ' loofah' as mans best friend..

still...

the article says..and I quote..."The swollen balls at the tip of the harp sponge's upright branches hold the sperm packets. The balls release the spermatophores into passing currents, and other nearby sponges capture the packets on fine filaments along their branches."

I am pretty sure Ferryman had this in his blog...!

just sayin'
