Caption: Jeweled anemone hermit crab (Dardanus gemmatus). A hermit crab has no shell of its own. Instead, it uses the shell of a marine gastropod. When it grows bigger, it will look for a larger shell. It is a scavenger, feeding on plant and animal debris. Photographed off the island of Malapascua in the province of Cebu in the Philippines.
