Description


Red gorgon on a brass base.

Red gorgonians (Acabaria biserialis) line the rocky slopes between 20 and 100 meters deep. It is necessary to use a flashlight to appreciate their brilliance, because at this depth, the red appears dark blue.

Attached perpendicular to their support, the colonized polyp branches filter the water with the current to capture the micro-organisms in suspension.

Gorgonians, like corals, are animals living in the form of sessile colonial polyps, organized in a tree structure. Each polyp has 8 tentacles which filter the plankton and consume it. The general structure, a skeleton both flexible and hard, called gorgonine do not grow towards the sun (it does not require light to develop) but perpendicular to the current, so as to filter a maximum of water flow.

A very beautiful decorative object.
