Tube Anemone

It will probably come as no surprise that Tube Anemones, like Tube Worms, like to live in a tubes. They disappear down these tubes to protect themselves against predators.

Tube Anemones can be stunningly beautiful and are far less likely to disappear down their tubes than Tube worms. This is probably due to fact that they make their tubes out of mucous and as a result are probably not very pleasant.

Tube Anemones pop up all over Sydney in a range of colours from purple to creamy white. It is hard to do them justice in a photograph - they are one of the creatures that invariably looks better in person than in photographs.
