Jellies or sponges?

According to the article entitled “Animal evolution: Sponges really are oldest animal phylum” over at Science Daily by a team from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich, the winner of who is older is…..the sponge.

In recent years, zoologist have again been debating the topic of which came first but after a re-examination of the evidence, it seems that the answer is the same. Sponges are the oldest animal phylum.
