Coral Reefs

Today's reading is about coral reefs. Corals are small animals, about the size of the tip of a pen, and they never move. When they die their hard shell is left behind and a new coral attaches itself to the old shell. In this way coral reefs are slowly built up over time.

What our reading does NOT talk about is all the other animals that live in and around coral reefs. In this video you'll see all sorts of fish and crabs and super-scary things and creepy-crawly things. None of those are corals, but they all rely on the coral reef to survive. Where is the coral in this video?
