Aggregating Anemone eating Lobster

Anthopleura elegantissima

Description:

Anemone eating what's left of a lobster. The antenna were hanging out. When I lightly tugged on them, the anemone would not let go.

Habitat:

Exposed rock in tidepools. This species is the most abundant species of sea anemone found on rocky, tide swept shores along the Pacific coast of North America from Alaska to Baja California - Wikipedia

Notes:

This was spotted by one of my teen nature enthusiasts :) "This species of anemone is capable of reproducing both sexually and asexually." - Wikipedia
