Waratah Anemones

Waratah anemones, named after the vibrant red waratah flower, are common in rock pools along the east coast of Australia. These amazing organisms reproduce asexually through cloning themselves, and live in colonies of related individuals. They defend their borders, and if another colony gets too close they will attack it.
