Sea anemone belongs to the philum of the Cnidarians, to the class of Antozoi, to the subclass of the Esacorallia and to the order of Attiniaria.

Also known as Venus hair it is very easy to meet it in the whole Mediterranean Sea. It usually populates the interdental area, that is, the area between high and low tide, where it feeds on invertebrates and small fish that they capture with tentacles equipped with nematocysts (urticant organs enclosed in some Celenterate cells, called nematocytes that serve to ‘animal for defense and to paralyze prey).

The sea anemone belongs to the philum of the Cnidarians and they are solitary polyp shapes, sometimes of consistent size, with an extreme variety of shapes and colors. The body, roughly cylindrical, has a very simple structure: it consists in fact of an external epithelial layer, called ectoderma or epiderma, and of an internal one, called endoderma or gastroderma. At the upper end of the body is the oral disc, flat and radially symmetric.

We found it in just a few centimeters of water and it is very easy to photograph it and film it with a camera even just by snorkeling.

The sea anemone has many names among which also snake hair is however an actinia that can reach considerable dimensions with strong stinging power. There are many species of crustaceans and fish that, immunized by its bites, find protection between its tentacles. We will often find crustaceans and gobies that spend their existence in symbiosis with the sea anemone.
