Caption: Brain coral. View of a brain coral (Diploria strigosa). Corals are made by tiny invertebrate marine organisms which protect themselves by building a large external skeleton of hard calcium carbonate or horny material, as seen here. This protective skeleton is called coral. The brain coral's external appearance is one of convoluted paths similar to that of the human brain.
