The Slow Life of Coral Reef

This might surprise you, but corals and sponges are basically the oldest animals on Earth. Even though they play an important role in the biosphere particularly in building coral reefs, these brightly colored marine animals lead a highly secretive life rarely seen by the naked human eye.

To show how these living creatures actually move and live, Barcelona-based production company myLapse documented an incredibly vibrant time-lapse showcasing that these creatures are among the most beautiful species on Earth.

Simply titled ‘Coral Colors,’ this mesmerizing video shows just how these unique creatures are highly mobile, a feature that can only be apppreciated through this ultra-HD 4K resolution. They magically surge, blossom and close up to each other at their own liking and dignified pace.

Despite being one of the oldest things on earth, corals remain one of the most unknown creatures. This video shows their spectacular beauty and mysterious movements in an intriguing and extraordinary way.

We hope that this video attracts attention to the coral reef and encourage the world to take a much keener interest in one of the world’s natural wonders before they become eradicated as a result of climate change.
