In New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium will list information about this creature.

"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."

Upon donation or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers the curator will say:

"Medusa herself would be impressed by the sea anemone. This pretty predator loves to wave its colorful flowing locks about. But these gorgeous tresses are, in fact, deadly tentacles surrounding a hungry mouth! Triggered by the slightest touch, these tentacles harpoon victims with neurotoxin. The sea anemone then pulls the helpless, hapless prey into its mouth for a spot of lunch! I say, let this be a lesson! Never, ever make an enemy... out of an anemone!"

Further information[]

Main article: Sea anemone on Wikipedia

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.
