Giant Green Anemone
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I found this Giant Green Anemone on the Oregon Coast in some tidepools near Tilamook Oregon. |
Named after a terrestrial flower, the anemone, the sea anemone is a group of water-dwelling, filter feeding animals of the order Actinaria. As a cnidarian, it is closely related to coral and jellyfish. The anemone is a (usually) solitary polyp with stinging cells (cnidocytes) in its tentacles. These stinging cells serve to paralyze and capture the prey, which is then moved by the tentacles to the mouth for digestion inside a central cavity.

Very nice clear, sharp photo Julie. These green ones are seen the most on the Oregon Coast. It does look almost like you took this underwater.
