Sea Anemone

Sea Anemone, common name for marine, flowerlike polyp having a vaselike body. Large specimens can attain a diameter of 1 m (3 ft). The body is closed and attached to rocks or coral at one end and, at the other end, has a central mouth surrounded by tentacles armed with nematocysts (stinging cells) that paralyze and entangle small fish and marine animals. Most sea anemones reproduce sexually; budding and fission are comparatively rare. The young are discharged from the mouth as free-swimming larvae, which soon attach themselves to surfaces.
Scientific classification: Sea anemones make up the order Actiniaria of the class Anthozoa.
