    Link: Magic Anemone in the Philippines - This water dwelling, predatory animal shrinks away and disappears when enemies are near. Cool footage.

    don`t most anenomes do that anyway? I guess maybe they aren`t so big, so it`s not so dramatic.

    anenomes aren`t plants. and if you REALLY want to get technical, no plants can really live in the ocean. and don`t go telling me kelp and seaweed are plants, because they`re not.

    Heh, sea cucumbers are not veggies either. And sweet bread is not sweet nor bread! EEEK! The shame!

    Because something is called a sea plant and is different from what we consider plants in the air world doesn`t mean a parallel cannot be formed between both. After all, we have predatory plants that move as quickly as anemones.
