Strawberry Anemones Forever
Corynactis californica, often called the strawberry anemone or club-tipped anemone, isn't an anemone at all! It's actually more closely related to stony corals. The luminous pink-orange glow is a result of biofluorescence—proteins in its cells absorb energy from ultraviolet light and reemit it as a different color.
In recent years the strawberry anemone's historical range has expanded to areas of the Monterey Bay as a result of warmer waters due to climate change. You're unlikely to come across these anemones while you're out tide-pooling since they're typically found in water deeper than 11 feet. However, if you brave the cold waters of the bay for a dive, you'll probably see strawberry fields covering areas of the ocean floor.
