Into the Tube

Tube dwelling anemones are similar to sea anemones, but they belong to a separate subclass of anthozoans. They are solitary, and typically live buried in soft sand or sediments. They create tubes created from mucous and threads of nematocyst-like material they secrete to retreat into when disturbed. They are commonly found in many parts of the world, but you still admire them from time to time because they look so pretty swaying in the current/surge.
