Shore Buddies Wisdom Wednesday

Clownfish live within the tentacles of VENOMOUS anemone! Luckily for them, clownfish are covered in mucus which prevents them from being stung by the tentacles. The relationship between the clownfish and anemone is an example of mutualism. Both creatures benefit from their situation. The clownfish are protected, allowing them to remove any parasites that may harm the anemone. Talk about teamwork!
