Caption: Brain coral. Close-up of the surface of a brain coral, one of the major reef-building corals. A single brain coral consists of millions of tiny coral polyps that build an external skeleton of calcium carbonate to protect themselves. They feed by filtering plankton from passing water currents. Photographed in the Red Sea.
