  1. order siphonophora

    Order Siphonophora is a classification of marine organisms within the phylum Cnidaria. They are a group of colonial hydrozoans, which include species like the Portuguese man o' war and the by-the-wind sailor. Unique to this order, these organisms are made up of a complex colony of specialized individual animals called zooids that work together as a single entity, rather than existing as independent organisms. These zooids have different roles including feeding, reproduction, and defense. Some siphonophores are among the longest animals in the world.
