Giant Caribbean Sea Anemone

Giant Caribbean Sea Anemone | Oceans and Wildlife | Scoop.it
This anemone is predatory and feeds on fishes, crustaceans, or other invertebrates that stray too close to its tentacles.  The tentacles are covered with stinging cells that paralyze their prey.  Once a small fish or other prey is captured, the anemone quickly wraps it in as many tentacles as possible.  It then efficiently passes the prey to its mouth, at the center of its disc.
