And yet I stumble upon a really cool science blog and find these time lapse videos.
These are actual videos of corals climbing out of what could have been a very sandy grave. Amaaaaazing.
I apologize to all the coral feelings I've hurt with my firm (and erroneous) stance on their "mortality", or (assumed) lack of.
I stand corrected and promise to be appalled (even more so than I usually am) at issues of dynamite fishing and the death of our seas (those murderers!).
Corals live! Yes, they do.
