  • 4. Coral Reefs are livingcommunities of tinyanimals called polyps.One piece of coral can be home toover 1,000 polyps, each of whichhave a soft body covered in a hardouter shell called an exoskeleton.When a polyp dies itsexoskeleton stays behind toform a foundation for newpolyps to live and grow.More than 400 of the worlds coral canbe found in the great barrier reef coralsuch as Brain Coral, Staghorn Coral,Cauliflower Coral, Elephant Ear Coraland Table Coral.
