Sea anemones are the flowers of the
sea. They are related to sea jellies, corals and many other cousins that have
polyps with stinging cells. Anemones may live alone or in colonies. They have
many colours. They feed by extending their tentacles into the water hoping to
catch tiny animals passing by.
Many anemones in cooler southern (or northern) waters are harmless to people although when touched they feel sticky and cling to your finger.
