Into the Blue - Pom Pom Crab

Pom Pom Crabs are an invertebrate like no other! These unique crabs keep a small anemone in each claw, which are used to ward off predators for protection. When they do this, they look like they're waving pom poms around. It's amusing to us, be can be scary to a potential threat. The crab will also use the anemones like mops on the substrate which will clean up detritus or leftover food. If one anemone dies, the crab will split one so it can have it's preferred one for each claw. The anemones they hold can bother sensitive corals and invertebrates, but the sting isn't strong because of the small size!
