Caption: Anemone hermit crabs (Dardanus pedunculatus). At night these large crabs are commonly seen feeding on the corals and sand patches of the reef. To protet themselves from predators they attach anemones to their shells. The stings of the anemone are enough to deter most attacks. Photographed in Manokwari harbour, West Papua in Indonesia, Asia.
