Creature Feature #14: Anemone

Sea anemones are an Order of  polyp that make their home on the sea bed. They use their tentacles to hunt for prey, specifically small fish that draw too close. They have formed a symbiotic relationship with Clownfish, who use their tentacles as their refuge and do not get eaten.

There are numerous different species of anemone.
