Nemo says hello
You’ve probably heard of a certain famous clownfish. In the Indo-Pacific ocean, you’ll find his relatives darting through coral reefs.
Clownfish live in the poisonous tentacles of a sea anemone. How? Thanks to a pretty unique super-power: a thick layer of slimy mucus that protects their skin from the poison.
Sea anemones help protect clownfish from predators and offer up leftover food to nibble on. In return, clownfish keep sea anemones clean by eating up surrounding algae and reef debris.
At SEA LIFE, you’ll get up close to clownfish in their underwater coral kingdoms.
