GIANT SEA ANEMONE  : condylactis gigantea

: condylactis gigantea 

 10" in diameter. Tips of tentacles packed with powerful  stinging cells. These anemones are home to various shrimps as well as diamond blennies.  These animals gain protection from predators when they are within the anemone's tentacles  yet are able to avoid being stung themselves.
