Hi there! @casandrarondan! Welcome to OpenStudy! The two basic types of symmetry present in animals are bilateral symmetry and radial symmetry. Sponges are an example of radial symmetry and human are an example of bilateral symmetry.

Sponges are actually Asymmetrical {Exception Euspongia}........

Yes....I was wrong in that... Sea anemone is radially symmetrical... So phylum cnidaria

Radial symmetry is found in coelenterates and ctenophores.
