Trumpet anemone has several long and translucent tentacles used by the anemone to capture the prey and to defend itself, through the emission of white stinging filaments called “aconzie”. The column is brown in color and the base is smaller in diameter, with which these invertebrates can be firmly anchored on a rock, or migrate in search of a safe place suitable for their needs.
