Corals  (Class Anthozoa)

Corals exist as small sea anemone-like polyps which secrete calcium carbonate to form a hard skeleton that is characteristic of their species. Although corals can catch plankton using stinging cells on their tentacles, these animals obtain most of their nutrients from symbiotic algae. Consequently, most corals depend on sunlight and grow in clear and shallow water, typically at depths shallower than 200ft. Most corals are tropical but they are also found along the coast of Washington State and Alaska.
