Keep your friends close and your anemones even closer.

The hermit crab and sea anemone relationship is best described as a mutualistic relationship which is where both parties benefit mutually, and it is a type of symbiotic relationship as well. The sea anemone will eat scraps of food that the hermit crab releases as it eats, and the hermit crab is protected by camouflage and the sea anemone's natural defenses.

In the video below, you will see the hermit crab change shells, but then also grab the sea anemone off the old shell. Incredible!
