Snakelocks anemone

Anemonia viridis

Description:

Tentacles green-greyish with purple tips anemone.

Habitat:

Found in shallow waters on island of Lokrum, near Dubrovnik. Lokrum is a National Natural Park and highly protected zone. Common in Adriatic sea and all over Mediterranean.

Notes:

We took this one out for some time in order to observe it a bit and explain it to kids, which explains the plastic container in which it was photographed. Of course, the anemone was put in the same place where found after 15 minutes.
