Make Love Not War

This little sea anemone looks like a lover, not a fighter.  Wait? What? Don't be ridiculous.  Sea anemones don't fight.

Actually, yes they do.  Hubby and I learned that while watching The Nature of Things' Kingdom of the Tide. Not only do they defend themselves from predators, colonies of anemones wage war against each other. Yikes!  Maybe this heart-shaped anemone isn't as sweet as it looks.
