Hermit Crabs and True Crabs (Anomura-Brachyura) - My Hawaiian Images

A young Jeweled anemone crab (Dardanus gemmatus)--with some very healthy symbiotes on its shell! The symbiotes are Hermit crab anemones (Calliactis polypus), and I think outweigh the host animal in this case! The small anemones on either side of the crab's eyes are a different, and as yet undescribed species.
