Artist's Description

The ‘language’ of colour and also fluorescence is illustrated well within this Ceranthid tube anemone ~ even without flash ~ they make brilliant subject matter!

Cerianthids have a crown of tentacles that consists of two whorls of distinctly different sized tentacles. The outer whorl consists of large tentacles that extend outwards. These tentacles taper to points and are mostly used in food capture and defence. The smaller inner tentacles are held more erect than the larger lateral tentacles and are used for food manipulation and ingestion.
