Large colony of Cabbage Coral

Corals look like plants or rocks but they are in fact animals, they don't make their own food, as plants do. Corals have tiny, tentacle-like arms that they use to capture food from the water and sweep into their mouths. A coral is not just one animal but a whole colony of animals. They are beacons of biodiversity that house over a quarter of all marine species and provide food and livelihoods to more than half a billion people worldwide. But these undersea havens now face existential threats from overfishing, coastal development, and heat stress such as coral bleaching brought on by climate change.
