"Sea anemones make their homes by attaching to rocks and coral on the bottom of the sea. They use their venomous tentacles to stun fish and shrimp to the point of paralysis and then devour them. The only species of fish with a natural resistance to the venom is the clown fish. Sea anemones and the clown fish nesting in their tentacles make for a rather striking ocean-floor sight."

Sea anemones are a group of water-dwelling, predatory animals of the order Actiniaria. They are named for the anemone, a terrestrial flower. A sea anemone is a sessile polyp attached at the bottom to the surface beneath it by an adhesive foot, called a basal disc, with a column-shaped body ending in an oral disc. Most are from 1.8 to 3 cm (0.71 to 1.18 in) in diameter, but anemones as small as 4 mm (0.16 in) or as large as nearly 2 m (6.6 ft) are known.
