Ze Frank Has the Lowdown on Coral Reefs

In the latest edition of Ze Frank's True Facts series, we learn about reef coral. Yeah, it's an animal, although what we see of them are their shells, which make a reef. One animal of coral is called a polyp.

You might wonder how Ze could ever make a bawdy, silly, joke-filled video about coral, but he manages to do so. What we would call building a reef, he describes as a polyp "farting crystals." You get the idea. Yeah, it's a ridiculous way of telling a story, but that makes it much easier to learn how coral works. Or at least more likely to be remembered. See, already I am impressed that coral reproduces both sexually and by cloning themselves. And they have several ways of eating. The images in this video are beautiful to look at, but gross when you find out what's really happening. There's a one-minute skippable ad at the five-minute mark.

Is it just me or has ze frank's "True Facts" videos gotten less funny these last few years? I love the "Dear Kitten" videos and "Cats in Therapy" ones but lately his videos aren't very funny and they have long advertisements in the middle of the videos which makes me want to turn them off.
