Caption: Coral polyp (Leptopsammia pruvoti). This polyp can be up to 6 centimetres tall and 2 centimetres wide and have up to 96 tentacles. This is a polyp from a solitary coral. A solitary coral does not form the large colonial structures commonly associated with corals, but remains as a single polyp. Corals use their tentacles to feed by trapping plankton particles from the water currents. Photographed off Levant Island, France, in the north-western Mediterranean Sea.
