Caption: Pillar coral. Pillar coral (Dendrogyra cylindrus) is a hard coral whose colonies can reach up to three metres in height. The coral is unusual in that the polyps emerge to feed in the day, whereas most hard corals are nocturnal. These polyps give it the fuzzy appearance seen here. Photographed on Little Bahama Bank, Grand Bahama.
