National Park Mystery Photo 14: You Might Know What This Is, But Where is It?

The "Mystery Photo" puzzler returns after a short hiatus, and with what the editor hopes will be a bit of a stumper.

My guess is: Brain coral. Biscayne National Park

Timpanogos Cave National Monument has fossil coral. Looks like fossil coral to me.

Cookie nailed it. But, for the bonus round, where in Virgin Islands National Park did I take this shot?

The answer comes tomorrow....

Gift shop? I don't think it looks healthy.

Well, it's definitely not a "living" coral, but its definitely stood the test of time in its current location!
