Rasp coral

Pocillopora verrucosa

One of the incredible things coral can do is tear itself off its own skeleton, swim away and then reattach itself somewhere else.

This is a scene from a science fiction movie, I can imagine the alien peeling itself of its own bones and then landing on some sleeping human, or the bones of a dinosaur in a museum, or a child’s teddy bear.
