Caption: Sea anemone larva. Close-up of an immature sea anemone polyp showing its tentacles and mouth (brown, centre). Unlike other cnidarians, anemones lack the free-swimming medusa stage of the life cycle. Instead, the mature polyp produces eggs and sperm. The fertilized egg develops into a flattened, free-swimming larval form (planula), which then develops directly into another polyp. Photographed off the coast of Reunion Island, Indian Ocean.
