Mushroom Soft Coral

Anthomastus ritteri

Physical Characters : This animal takes on two very different shapes. When closed up tight, it looks like a mushroom. But with tentacles outstretched to feed, it looks more like a flower. So how does a mushroom coral catch its meals? Those showy tentacles contain poisonous stinging cells that capture tiny animals drifting by. They are normally upto 6 inches across in size.

Distribution : Mostly these are distributed on rocky surfaces at depths of 700-4,050 feet or 213-1,243 meters.

Food : They are mostly eating animal plankton.
