Caption: Boxer crab (Lybia tessellata). This crab is found in the tropical Indo-west Pacific. It defends itself from predators by carrying an anemone in each claw, which it waves at any approaching enemy. This is a symbiotic relationship, as the anemone encounters food sources as it is transported by the crab. The crabs carapace can reach 1.5 centimetres in length.
