Crabby Boarder

Photograph by Thomas Bannenberg, National Geographic Your Shot

A porcelain crab peers out from a sea anemone in this picture by Your Shot member Thomas Bannenberg, who captured the creatures in waters off the Philippines. Despite its name, the porcelain crab has a strong exoskeleton that it periodically sheds and regrows.

A really interesting shot, that could'nt have been easy to get. Easy to appreciate 'tho. Learning about these creatures seems to be as important as the pictures themselves. Admiring the results is for us, for me anyway, is something that I enjoy,   j.e.s.........

Sea anemones are definitely not plants, they're animals!

Don't be fooled into thinking that they live together, some plants like people can look innocent but once swallowed the damage is done. Always poke with a stick before trusting :-)
