Red Soft Coral

This is a large stalk or 'colony ' of soft coral. Each of the little star or hand-like appendages is an individual living organism. These animals are not reef building corals, but rather live on the reefs built by their cousins. The stalk that these creatures live on is actually .... soft ..... to the touch. Depth = 75' +/- Location: Kavieng, New Ireland Province, PNG.
