Despite what you might think, coral isn’t a plant. They’re tiny animals from the same group as jellyfish and anemones. Ze Frank provides a detailed look at these unusual creatures that live atop gigantic skeletal structures they leave on the ocean floor. Like other animals, these guys must find food rather than produce it on their own.
We love seeing the creative designs that fans submit to LEGO Ideas. Kris Kelvin’s lush and colorful set celebrates nature instead of man-made objects, with hundreds of organic shapes inspired by life at the bottom of the sea. We imagine the build instructions for this kit would be challenging, but we’re willing to try.
