The sea anemone looks like a plant, but it's actually an animal of the Actiniaria family. Garden anemones are plants of the Ranunculaceae family.

Sea Anemones are animals that eat fish and live in the ocean. They were named after anemones, a plant in the ranunculous family that makes its own food through photosynthesis.

Hope this helps.
