About This Quiz

Coral reefs take millions of years to build, and if you have ever had the opportunity to swim, dive or snorkel in and around these magnificent reefs of color, you can imagine why. They are some of the most stunning scenery in the world, bursting with vibrant color, hidden in plain sight as they lie just below the waters of the world's oceans. Teeming with life, coral reefs are also the most diverse of all marine ecosystems; at least 25% of the ocean and sea life depends upon the reefs for food and shelter. 

This quiz is all about the creatures who live in and around the world's coral reefs. They provide the color, the beauty and sometimes the sustenance for the reefs to grow. But how many of these creatures can you identify from an image? They may look familiar, but are you able to name them? Could you tell if you are looking at a clownfish or is it a scorpion fish? Are you looking at a sea sponge or a sea urchin? 

This quiz will be a challenge, but will also be the most beautiful quiz you've taken in a long time. So, take a dive and see which of these wonderful creatures you can identify!
