The Cheerleader by LazyDugong The Cheerleader by LazyDugong
Boxer Crab (or Pom Pom Crab!)
Lybia tessellata

This crab had the idea to keep in his arms two small stinging anemones, for his protection. The result is very funny: you should see him moving those anemones, when feeling in danger. Exactly as a cheerleader! :)

I just love these things. An animal that uses anemones as pom poms, what doesn't the ocean have in it! Great photo!

I have a bunch of these in my aquarium, they are really neat! When I first got one of my gobies, it tried to get in the cave where one of the pom pom crabs lived, and the crab punched it in the face with its anemone! The goby never did it again.
