Clownfish Feeding Sea Anemone Video


The clownfish and its sea anemone host live in a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship. The sea anemone provides the little clownfish with a home and protection, and the clownfish in turn provides the sea anemone a number of services.

A clownfish may take bits of food too large for it to consume itself and feed these to the sea anemone. There are even reports that it may capture a prey and drag it into the grasping tentacles of a waiting sea anemone.
