Burrowing anemone:
Burrowing anemone (Anthopleura artemisia): This is one of those species with two equally well-deserved names: the moonglow anemone, because of its amazingly pretty white bands on the tentacles, and the burrowing anemone, because it is normally attached to a rock that is buried in the sand. Only the tentacles stick out of the sand, and the anemone can retract itself down whenever necessary. Giant nudibranch (Dendronotus iris) is a predator of this anemone.
