These little extensions are what corals don’t just use to feed with, these can sting the hell out of the poor coral next door.

I tried to get a pic when they were over 5 inches in length but as the camera got closer it pulled them back in.

Yea thats a coral that wants to play war.

Nematocysts are capable of delivering powerful, often lethal, toxins, and are essential in capturing prey (Barnes, R.D., 1987). A coral's prey ranges in size from nearly microscopic animals called zooplankton to small fish, depending on the size of the coral polyps.
