Coral Reef

For lunch today, T enjoyed this bento with a coral reef theme.

His lunch consisted of:
  • two fish-shaped sandwiches (one with a candy eye)
  • puffed goldfish crackers
  • "CORAL REEF" Scrabble Junior Cheez-It Crackers
  • applesauce (in a small blue bowl with a waves design)
  • Little Debbie coral reef cake
  • milk (in a shaky cup with a blue and green fishes design)
There's also a coral-colored shell ring next to the applesauce container.

I discovered some interesting facts about coral reefs.
  • Coral reefs are underwater structures made from calcium carbonate secreted by corals.
  • Coral reefs are colonies of tiny animals found in marine waters that contain few nutrients.
  • Coral reefs grow best in warm, shallow, clear, sunny, and agitated waters.
  • Coral reefs are most commonly found at shallow depths in tropical waters, but deep water and cold water corals also exist.
  • Coral reefs occupy less than 0.1% of the world's ocean surface, yet they provide a home for 25% of all marine species.
