Sea Anemones, Hydroids, Jellyfish, Zoanthids, Corallomorph

Members of this Phylum have tentacles that have stinging capsules called nematocysts that they use for defense and capturing prey. Most stings have no harmful effects, but some are very toxic and should be avoided. Unless you are very familiar with the various species, it is best not to touch or molest them.
