Hmmm. Once upon a time, just above the worms, all animals had mobile larvae which then settled down for life. Oysters, barnacles, sea urchins. The sessile adult created zillions of eggs and sperm....

Then, somehow, the larvae became fertile, and the beginnings of vertebrate life began.

And, the USA was colonized by the mobile minority.

Sessile or mobile. Make your choice....
