| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Their tentacles, which are disposed in regular circles, and tinged with a variety of bright lively colors, very nearly represent the beautiful petals of some f the most elegantly fringed and radiated flowers, such as the carnation, marygold, and anemone. They are of various sizes, from that of the smallest thimble to the largest apple; and have considerable power of locomotion, being able not only to move along upon the base, but also in a reversed position upon their entacles.” — Goodrich, 1859
