Zooanthid Face

One of the benthic animals that we identified for our surveys were zooanthids. We didn’t get to the level of species identification, and flipping through my reef creature ID book quickly, there is little info in there about them.

This is a less common species as they are usually a colonial animal, but they do also have species that appear individually like this (though usually in groups). The placement of these ones and that little protrusion of rock to make it look like a face was just too amusing not to photograph.
