I learned that after planarians have been cut, they regenerate on the nutrients
that they have stored, since they no longer can eat food due to the pharynx
being cut off. I also heard that they are, however, able to absorb nutrients
through their body. Will a planarian die or not regenerate in a nutrient
lacking environment, such as in distilled water?
