The beadlet anemone is often found in mid and lower shore pools, and also out of pools in crevices and other damp places, looking like a blob of dark red, or green, jelly. Underwater, the anemone expands its tentacles to catch small creatures, such as prawns, and small fish like young blennies. Although flower-like in appearance, sea anemones are carnivorous animals, with poison in their tentacles that paralyses their prey.
