Ketchikan, Alaska - Amazing and beautiful animals can be seen during low tides at Buggy Beach, one just simply has to take the time to look.

The Sea Anenome looks like a plant, but is actually a meat eating animal. These creatures use their stinging tentacles to catch small animals, such as fish. They then close up and force the small animal into their mouth which is located in the center.
