Description

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.
