Strawberry anemones (Corynactis californica) are not actually true anemones but are a type of cnidarian known as anthozoans. They are related to anemones but are actually more closely related to corals. They live in large colonies and can often be found covering rocks and other substrate. Known also as club-tipped anemones and strawberry corallimorpharians, these small polyps only grow to 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) in diameter. Strawberry anemones get their name from their bright red color.
