Sea Anemone

The animal of the day is the Sea Anemone.  (Did you know: These seemingly plant like animals are actually vicious predators! They are closely related to jellyfish and sea corals!

The stinging cells they use to capture and subdue their prey is actually quite similar to what jellyfish use to sting!

They come in various sizes and types!
