Side by side

Here's one of the new pink-tipped anemones, feeding and growing, standing tall.

Anthopleura elegantissima

And, right next to it, one of the Leafy Hornmouth snails:

Ceratostoma foliatum, with the Warty tunicate behind it.

I love the contrasting textures, the rough, craggy shell of the snail, and the creamy greens, pinks, reds, and yellows of the soft tissues.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
