Low tide reveals treasures in the sea.

Grace O'Malley went out during a recent low tide. She found a Giant Green Sea Anemone and Turban Snails.

Sea Anemones are named for the flower anemone.  Sea Anemones are relatives of Coral and Jellyfish. They wait for a fish to come close enough to it tentacles, which contain venom.

Turban Snails are found in the intertidal zone. Their empty shells are often used by Hermit Crabs.

Thanks to Grace for allowing me to share her photo with you here.
