Caption: Lace coral bryozoan (Sertella septentrionalis) on a rock wall. Despite its name, this is not a coral. Bryozoans are colonial animals that filter particles of food from the water with tiny tentacles. They form hard (as here) or gelatinous masses in a variety of marine and freshwater environments. This bryozoan colony is around 10 centimetres in diameter. Photographed in the Mediterranean Sea.
