This sea anemone, found in the crevice of a coral reef is the species Condactylactus gigantea. A common inhabitant of tropical reefs in the Caribbean, this animal which is also commonly referred to as a “pink-tipped anemone”, may or may not actually have pink-tipped tentacles. Often the tentacle tips are purple, or green, or white. The tentacles, if touched are sticky and may cause a mild irritation to individuals with sensitive skin.
