Caption: Anemone tentacles uncoiled and active at night. An anemone is a sessile (anchored) invertebrate found in the sea. It uses its tentacles to sting fish and other marine prey. This food is then carried to its mouth at the base of its tentacles. An anemone can range in size from a few millimetres in diameter to 1.5 metres wide. Photographed in Kimbe Bay, Papua New Guinea.
