Caption: Sea anemones. Historical artwork of various unidentified sea anemones. Sea anemones are flower-like marine polyps which belong to the order Actinaria. They have a central mouth surrounded by tentacles with nematocysts. Nematocysts consist of stinging and thread cells which paralyse and entangle prey so it can be captured and digested. This is a 19th century illustration.
