Have you ever considered what happens to soap bubbles that disappear down the drain after washing your car? Or where leftover coconut oil ends up after washing pots and pans in your kitchen sink? What about dead leaves from non-native species in your garden? The answer:...
Who am I?
How can you tell it’s me?
I’ve got a distinctive orange column with white stripes surrounded by many small white tentacles that I use to catch my prey.
Where is the best place to find me?
I am one of the most common anemones and you can find me on rocky reef and on jetty pylons throughout the Bay.
Why am I important for Port Phillip Bay?
I am a carnivore who eats larvae of some invasive species, preventing them from settling on artificial structures.
