An individual man-o-war is actually a colony of unizexual organisms which are highly modified, each with their own high degree of specialization, although structurally similar to other solitary animals, they are all attached to each other and physiologically integrated rather than living independently. They are so specialized in their funtion that each of the four organisms lack the structures associated with other function and are therefore dependent for survival on the otherd to do what the other cannot do by itself.
