Learn more about corals

Did you know that Coral is an animal, more precisely a colony of polyps? It is often thought that coral is a plant, but coral is made up of numerous individual coral polyps.

Coral polyps build an external "backbone" for themselves by excreting the calcium carbonate they collect from the water around their body. Calcium carbonate turns into a hard, rock-like substance that forms the structure of the coral.
