The strawberry anemone is found along the rocky shore of the eastern Pacific Ocean from British Columbia to the Baja Peninsula. It forms clusters of many individuals under rocky ledges or on shaded rocks, concrete pilings and legs of oil platforms.
The strawberry anemone is not a true anemone, although it superficially resembles one. It is a corallimorpharian, which is more closely related to stony corals, except that it lacks a calcareous exoskeleton. Its most common colors are red, crimson or pink. Its tentacles are transparent to white in color and have a swelling at their tip.
Look for the strawberry anemone in the smaller exhibits in the Cold Water Quest gallery.
