Clownfish & Anemone | Copyright 3D Entertainment

3 things to know about this unusual couple:

  1. The anemone is an animal with a clownfish as a symbiotic partner, meaning they both benefit.
  2. To eat, the anemone stings small fish with its venomous tentacles but the clownfish is immune.
  3. Protected in a coat of mucus, the clownfish chases away fish wanting to eat the anemone’s tentacles. In return, it finds unlikely shelter.

Yes, you are DONE with your marine life lesson for the day, congrats !
