How to use "Earreach" in context?
Earreach is defined as the ability of an organism to extend its anemone-like tentacles far beyond its body to capture prey or to reach objects.
The term earreach has been used to describe the hunting abilities of many marine creatures, including jellyfish, anemones, and fish.
Some animals, such as the common octopus, can capture and eat prey that is several times their own body size. Other animals, such as the jellyfish, use their tentacles to nab small prey.
The tentacles of some marine creatures can be quite lengthy, stretching up to 30 feet.
