Donating to the museum[edit]

In New Leaf[edit]

Upon donating a Sea Anemone to the museum, it can be found in the large pool in the first room of the sea exhibit, along with many other species of sea creatures. It is found on the large rock. The exhibit has this to say about the Sea Anemone:

"Sea anemones make their homes by attaching to rocks and coral on the bottom of the sea. They use their venomous tentacles to stun fish and shrimp to the point of paralysis and then devour them. The only species of fish with a natural resistance to the venom is the clownfish. Sea anemones and the clownfish nesting in their tentacles make for a rather striking ocean-floor sight."

In New Horizons[edit]

When donating to the museum, Blathers will say the following:

"Medusa herself would be most impressed by the sea anemone. This pretty predator loves to wave its colorful flowing locks about. But those gorgeous tresses are, in fact, deadly tentacles surrounding a hungry mouth. Triggered by the slightest touch, these tentacles harpoon victims with neurotoxin. The sea anemone then pulls the helpless, hapless prey into its mouth for a spot of lunch! I say, let this be a lesson! Never, ever make an enemy...out of an anemone!"

After donating, it is located in the coral reef tank.
