Staghorn Coral (Acropora cervicornis)

Set of scaled top and side view drawings of the Staghorn Coral

The Staghorn Coral (Acropora cervicornis) lives close to the surface in warm marine waters. These waters should also have adequate light and oxygen supply. It is one type of coral unique to both marine life and humans in that in areas where it is abundant; it provides a suitable habitat for marine organisms while also protecting shorelines from enormous waves and storms. Staghorn Corals reproduce sexually and asexually and have two kinds of polys and tentacles in multiples of three. These corals may be golden tan or pale color while the tips are white. These corals grow in dense stands with antler-like branches that come out of a central trunk upwards.

The Staghorn Coral has an overall colony diameter between 3.3’- 9.8’ (1-3 m) and typical height of 3’-5’ (.91-1.52 m). The diameters of the individual branches are roughly 1.6”-2.75” (4-7 cm) with branch lengths of 3.3’-6.6’ (1-2 m).

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.
