Caption: Porcelain crab (Neopetrolisthes ohshimai) among the tentacles of a sea anemone. This crab can walk through the poisonous tentacles without being stung. This gives it protection from predators, and allows it to forage scraps of food from the tentacles. This crab is about four centimetres across. Photographed in Kapalai, Malaysia.
