Caption: Coral. Close-up of the coralTubastrea sp. Corals consist of colonies of individual animals called polyps. The polyps are simple creatures, with a ring of tentacles leading to a gullet. The tentacles have nematocysts (stinging cells) that are used to catch small prey as they swim past. Photographed off the Raja Ampat Islands, West Papua, Indonesia.
