Sea anemone


Did you know...?

  • Sea anemones belong to the so-called flower animals. However, they are not sedentary, but can move very slowly by crawling.
  • Some anemones enter into symbiosis with animals: the nettles of the sea anemone protect their inhabitants from predators and their inhabitants clean them from vermin, debris and other things.
  • The diet of sea anemones varies greatly depending on the species. Some feed exclusively on plankton, while others eat small fish, snails and crustaceans.
