Fun Facts:

  1. Coral is a colony of living organisms made up of both an animal and an algae. The algae uses natural sunlight to provide food for the animal, and the animal, in turn, offers protection for the algae. This symbiotic relationship leads to form a limestone foundation for massive new coral reef structures.
  2. Coral can reproduce itself in one of 3 ways. Asexually, sexually and by cloning itself
  3. Atlantis, The Palm is growing various species of coral in The Lost Chambers and then relocating it to a new reef in the Arabian Gulf
