An exhibit shows the various types of coral we've seen on our snorkeling adventures. This is lettuce coral, and is pale green underwater.

The elliptical coral was generally a yellow or gold underwater

Thin leaf lettuce coral was generally pale brown when we saw it.

Finger coral in its usual color. Corals take on the colors of the algae that are growing on it.

Symmetrical coral tends to be shades of yellow, but is sometimes white underwater.

We haven't actually seen this coral yet. We can hardly wait.

This is a small piece of Elkhorn coral, which grows on top of reefs and in shallow waters just below the surface. It tends to be golden colored in the wild, and can grow to 2-3 feet high.
