Pink Sea Anemones

This painting of sea anemones shows their adhesive feet located at the end of their pedestal like base. They can unglue their feet and glide away at a speed of three to four inches an hour. Sometimes a hermit crab will massage a sea anemone until it releases its hold on a rock. The crab then holds the anemone on top of its shell until it attaches. This arrangement gives the crab a perfect camouflage!
