How did Bilbo answer when Smaug asked who he was in The Hobbit?

According to the book The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien:Smaug asks, "Who are you and where do you come from, may I ask?"Bilbo answered, "You may indeed! I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led. And through the air, I am he that walks unseen. I am the clue-finder, the web-cutter, the stinging fly. I was chosen for the lucky number. I am he that buries his friends alive and drowns them and draws them alive again from the water. I came from the end of a bag, but no bag went over me. I am the friend of bears and the guest of eagles. I am Ringwinner and Luckwearer; and I am Barrel-rider."

What names does Bilbo give himself when talking to Smaug?

According to the book The Hobbit, Smaug describes himself as such: "Now I am old and strong. My armor is like tenfold shields, my teeth are like swords, my claws spears, the shock of my tail a thunderbolt, my wings a hurricane, and my breath death! I am armored above and below with iron scales and hard gems. No blade can pierce me." This is the only part in the book in which Smaug describes himself. Hope this answer helped! Nagem8.

What are sea anemones stinging cells used for?

Cnidarians (Phylum Cnidaria; stinging animals, including sea anemones) use their stinging cells (properly called cnidocytes, Latin for "stinging chamber") in order to capture prey. The cnidocytes are basically a cellular-sized harpoon. When prey bumps into the cnidocyte, a trigger mechanism is activated and the harpoon rushes out. Some species add poisons for good measure. The tentacles are then able to draw food to the mouth, where it is digested and the waste expelled through the mouth (yes, they use their mouth as an anus).

What is a stinging cell cnidarian called?

A cnidocyte, cnidoblast, or nematocyte is a type of venomous cell unique to the phylum Cnidaria (corals, sea anemones, hydrae, jellyfish, etc.). The cnidocyte cell provides a means for them to catch prey and defend themselves from predators. A cnidocyte fires a structure that contains the toxin, from a characteristic sub-cellular organelle called a cnidocyst (also known as a cnida or nematocyst). This is responsible for the stings delivered by jellyfish.
