Sea pen is a marine cnidarians, colony of polyps (small anemonelike individuals) working together for the survival of the whole. It got its namebecause of its appearance that resembles an oldtime feather pen; serves as food for some sea stars and nudibranchs (sea slugs). Belongs to the order Pennatulacea and feeds on zooplankton.
