Anemones ride the eelgrass blades, perch on the tip of brown algae, ride the snails.
Tonight, one took a leaf from the hermit crabs' game plan, and moved into a shell I had prepared for a growing hermit.
|Lots of room for growth in here!|
Hermits share their shells quite happily with assorted worms*, but I doubt they will extend the same welcome to an anemone firmly nailed down just inside the front door.
