Info

Dofleinia armata Wassilieff, 1908

The name "Armed Anemone" comes from the launchable nematocysts of the sea anemone, which can easily penetrate human skin and which results in fierce and strong burning pain for months, so caution in dealing with these animals!
These animals live in sandy or muddy bottoms in the sunlight zone of the sea.
Dofleina armata is not a symbiosis anemone; it needs regular fresh food in the form of small fish, invertebrates, zooplankton and detritus, and carrion, because it has no zooxanthellae.
