Bríef reef

Scientists have determined that the green sea slug – because it produces chlorophyll – is part plant and part animal. Meanwhile, I am still warming up to the fact that coral is an animal. Australian photographer Daniel Stoupin, a doctoral student in marine biology at the University of Queensland, makes that clearer with a 3 1/2 minute high–magnification time-lapse video that took him 9 months to create. As its title indicates, coral live at an infinitesimally smaller pace than we do. Watch the video HERE.
