Went back when tide was a little higher to see 2044580 under water. Not what I expected.
Millions of these at this marina.
Out of water a low tide, growing upright between seaweeds etc. Maybe Epiactis thompsoni though that is described as red and white striped and this is more orange and yellow.
Located just outside the marine reserve.
Underwater view two days later: 2076220.
Sea anemones are a group of water-dwelling, predatory animals of the order Actiniaria. They are named for the anemone, a terrestrial flower. Sea anemones are classified in the phylum Cnidaria, class Anthozoa, subclass Hexacorallia. Anthozoa often have large polyps that allow for digestion of larger prey and also lack a medusa stage. As cnidarians, sea anemones are related to corals, jellyfish, tube-dwelling anemones, and Hydra.
