6b. Giant Green Anemone

Sea anemones, like this Giant Green Anemone (Anthopleura xanthogrammica), are animals, not plants. They are Cnidarians, related to corals and jellyfish. The green color in the center of the Giant Green Anemone comes from symbiotic algae. Notice that the tentacles of this species are green, right to the very tip.
