Description

This 1" Epiactis prolifera or Proliferating Anemone has at least 14 babies clinging to it. I was very excited to find this amazing anemone on a rock during a minus tide. I'd never seen the clinging babies before!

Description

These two lovely anemones must be Aulactinia incubans, or Warty columned anemone. They were under water during the low tide, right beside a seaweed-covered rock, each about 2" across.

Description from Wikipedia

Cnidaria (/naɪˈdɛəriə/ with a silent c) is a phylum containing over 10,000species of animals found exclusively in aquatic and mostly marine environments. Their distinguishing feature is cnidocytes, specialized cells that they use mainly for capturing prey. Their bodies consist of mesoglea, a non-living jelly-like substance, sandwiched between two layers of epithelium that are mostly one cell thick. They have two basic body forms: swimming medusae and sessile polyps, both of which are radially symmetrical with mouths...
