Sea Anemone, tan and orange

This painting of a sea anemone is only 5 x 7 inches! Sea anemones, eat fish, shrimp, crabs and microorganisms. They can eat a small fish in just a few minutes. They are also cannibals and eat each other. In turn, sea slugs, starfish, eels, flounders and codfish eat anemones.

I have not heard of humans in the U.S. eating anemones, but in Spain and Italy the snakelocks anemone is deep fried after being coated in batter, and eaten. I have shown a painting of a snakelocks anemone in my January 3 post. If you would like further information about the painting pictured in today’s post, click here.
