Caulastrea furcata skeletal structure consist of tubular stalks with stars on each tip. As in other colony-forming corals, colonies of Caulastrea furcata are made up of several small polyps. These soft-bodied animals are related to anemones. Each poly bears relatively short tentacles that direct food into its central mouth. Then the food is digested in a sac-like body cavity.
