Giant plumose anemone

Metridium farcimen

Description:

Beautiful Anemone while diving today at Edmonds Marine Sanctuary. The flowers of the ocean in my eyes, and the freezing water was totally worth this shot.

Habitat:

It ranges from Alaska to California, but most common in the puget sound.

Notes:

They feed on small invertebrates, using their tentacles to catch them and force them into it's mouth.

Hi Arya. Sea anemones are not mollusks -- they're cnidarians. ;)
