Once I found the edge of a very large Xestospongia muta had presumably
been damaged very recently by a diver grabbing it, there were three
pieces of it lying on the sand. It looked like very new damage. I
carefully pieced back together the bits. On another dive two weeks
later, the sponge had healed and fused back together so well that the
damage wasn't visible. Yes, the same sponge.
