Four years ago, I sang about tropical coral in one of the worlds driest climates. Somewhere near the Mexican border, a gang of us Southern California rabble rousers gathered to make music and have fun; it is one of my favorite memories from my time spent living on the West Coast. So sit back, relax, and enjoy Thor and I in this acoustically driven version of “Goniopora.”
Goniopora are a glorified SPS! They are beautiful and so are you.
Bonus! Below is a short video of Goniopora eating Goniopower, showing a clear feeding reaction. The polyps reach out like big hands on noodley arms to grab the food. The whole polyp then retracts, drawing the food into their stomachs, and moving out of the way of other polyps. They’re alive!!!
