Grooved-Brain Coral [Diploria labyrinthiformis] --- Brain coral is a common name given to corals in the family Faviidae so called due to their generally spheroid shape and grooved surface which resembles a brain. Each head of coral is formed by a colony of genetically -dentical polyps which secrete a hard skeleton of calcium carbonate; this makes them important coral reef builders like other stony corals.
Boulder brain coral (Diploria strigosa), the spawning of this is super cool to watch. It disperses only eggs or sperm. It releases their eggs, investment is small. But SECORE takes these babies and grows back in lab at ZOOOS (aka my job)!
Coral are perfect for texture. Every individual design all add up to a wide variety of eye sores. texture can draw someone in usually with wonder. Texture flows all through out this photograph making me feel like it is actually in front of my eyes rather than online. -This photo shows texture and coarseness
