All the Year Round: A Nature Reader - Vol. 2

3. THE CORAL REEFS

CAME from an egg. So it is not only by dividing or budding that I increase, but also by the hatching of eggs. I keep on budding and sending forth eggs.

There are many hills in the ocean, and I chose one of these for my home. The eggs settle down beside me. They begin to grow and bud and send forth more eggs. So, all around the foot of the hill, on which we have settied, we form a ring.

As each tiny coral forms new corals, it gradually hardens. Thus, the tiny creatures make a solid foundation for those that grow above and at the side of them.

Little by little, all the cracks between our walls are filled with sand and bits of shell.

The rocky walls, far down in the sea, form strange and beautiful shapes.
