Fossil Tabulate Coral
Tabulate coral is made of tiny colonial animals that generally build stony skeletons of calcium carbonate. They have been extinct for hundreds of millions of years.
Tabulate coral skeletons grow in a variety of shapes and patterns: mound-shaped, lacy fans, branching twigs, and even corkscrew-shaped. Their skeletons have numerous tiny openings, each of which is the home of a minute animal.
