This Porcelain Crab, commonly called an anemone crab appears ready for battle. They live in a symbiotic relationship in a sea anemone along with clownfish, grooming the tentacles and enticing would-be victims to become trapped in the tentacles. The anemone, in turn, provides protection to these tiny creatures. Photographed in the Solomon Islands, this little fellow could stand on a nickel with nothing hanging over the edges.
This is a Seabae Clownfish seeking protection in a large sea anemone.
