Previous Anemone And Crab
38 of 54 from Winter Harbour To Brooks Peninsula

Anthopleura elegantissima (Aggregating Anemone, Clonal Anemone), Hemigrapsus nudus (purple shore crab)

I took a few pictures of this Anemone and in each you can see the crab getting larger as it comes up to the surface. These little guys only get to be 2 inches wide and are generally herbivorous.
