Did you know that corals inflate to avoid being buried alive in the sand?

                                          

The Corals give the impression of solid structures, almost inert, and yet are able to inflate to avoid being buried alive in the sand.

This was recorded in a surprising images captured by a scientist at the University of Queensland in Australia who used a photographic technique known as time-lapse, which is to take still images which are then reproduced at a rate determined

It was known that the species could be released from the sandy seabed, but did not know how. As you move sandy sediment on the seabed, corals have to breathe and to avoid suffocation.

To scroll, corals "inflate and deflate" parts of his body and, as shown in images taken by Bongaerts, use a similar technique to free when they are covered by sand.
