I choose the Snakelock Anemone because of the symbiotic relationship it has (some have) with the Algae in its surface

tissue.
It moves around, maybe to keep the algae happy with light for photosynthesis, so it has locomotion? Also, it rips itself into two halves for reproduction - no

fun, but practical.

zooxanthellea I think is the name of the single cell algae that live in the tissues of the anemone.
I wonder if it is the reason that the anemone

move around into new position, is so that the algae get the needed light intensity? (see www.seashoreantics.com in the features

locomotion bit)

There is an interesting discussion, thoughts on this little critter, snakelock anemone, about reproduction (tearing into two and about how old they

actually are....... maybe everlasting!

See here:
