Caption: Anemone hermit crabs. At night these large crabs are commonly seen feeding on the corals and sand patches of the reef. To protect themselves from predators they attach anemones to their shells. The stings of the anemone are enough to deter most attacks. Photographed in the Lembeh Strait, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
