Elkhorn Coral (Acropora palmata)

Set of scaled top and side view drawings of the Elkhorn Coral with dimensions

The Elkhorn Coral (Acropora palmata) is a fast-growing coral easily identified by its complex branching structure composed of colonies of dense stands forming interlocking thickets. This structure makes it resemble elk antlers. It is mostly found in the Caribbean and Bahamas very close to the shoreline. As a result, it is under immense damage from human pollution and coral bleaching. The Elkhorn coral has a large body, and branches are sturdy and thick, which can be yellow to yellow-brown with white tips. This coral can reproduce sexually or asexually. It is considered a hard coral.

The way Corals grow on the ocean floor makes us think of them as plants, but they are invertebrates. These colorful creatures are under the class Anthozoa and depend on one another and prefer warm shallow waters or cold ocean floors. They live and grow together, forming large colonial colonies.
