We love animals. In fact, we love them so much that we geek out over learning little-known animal facts, and we suspect we're not the only ones. Each Tuesday, we'll share a few fun animal facts with you from experts at zoos, parks and aquariums all over the country (and maybe even beyond). Since it's summer, we're focusing on animals of an aquatic nature.

Schick has been working with Shedd for more than 15 years, and has been studying corals for close to 20 years.
