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!

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

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.
