I am wondering whether Ctenophora is like Cnidarian is the way that they
lack anus?
However, Ctenophora do have an ANAL PORE as i learn it from a figure.
Is that Anal pore not neccessarily a REAL anus?
Does it mean that anal pore is for getting rid of waste for animals that
live without complete digestive tract?
is that no digestive tract= no ANUS, but anal pore can happen?
Thanks for kind attention.
