Caption

The endemic Hawaiian Pom-Pom Crab (Lybia edmondsoni) is associated with Sea Anemones (Triactis) that it carries around holding them with their claws and using them for defense, waving them in front of the possible aggressor. This is a mutualistic symbiosis, the benefit for the anemone is in being transported around, with more ease in finding food, Hawaii, USA.
