Vacuoles, spaces, lacunae and cavities have been of importance in all organisms, may it a be plant or animal. All animals have cavities. The cavities perform different functions in different animals. But most of these are not usually considered body cavities. Spongocoel for example, a cavity in sponges, is really a system of water canals.
