Fringing Reefs Look but don't touch!

They are the most common type of reefs in the Caribbean and Red Sea.

Darwin believed that fringing reefs were the first reefs to form around a land mass.

The Red Sea has one of the biggest reefs in the world.

Coral Reefs begin to form when free-swimming coral larvae attach to submerged rocks along the edges of islands.

A fringing reef is a coral reef that lies on a coast and grows directly from the shoreline.

Very common animals that are found in coral reefs are sponges, parrotfish, eels, jellyfish and anemones.
