In size may have been more than a meter long. Is not the typical brain coral but has a particular brain-like shape.
Wall deep in coral reef Shaab Satayih, near Hamata.
Thanks for the comments! It was huge..around 2 m and was far deep in a wall. Amazing how nature can mimic shapes in such different species :-)
WOW! Perfect name for it and perfect specimen.
nice, looks somewhat like my "brain-shaped" fungi
this is so cool superb
Well, it gets the name from its shape :-)This one must have been at least 1 to 2 m long and it was in a coral reef wall. they are quite common in the Red Sea.I could still not find the species name, though. Any suggestions?
i thought it was a real human brain
Thanks, Misako :-)
love this type of coral!
Oh well, that's why it got that name haha.
I was about to say the same!
Wooow Looks like a brain
