A Starburst You Don’t Want to Eat

The arms of a Starburst Anemone grab for tiny particles in a tide pool.

Tidepooling is a great way to get outside and get some exercise while getting to know some critters in our backyard.  This Starburst Anemone is one of the amazing and delicate creatures living in the intertidal zone of the ocean.  Remember to be careful where you step because many creatures hide under barnacles and mussels during low tide and are just trying to wait it out until the water returns to them.  It’s best to stick to rocks when exploring this world of cool critters.
