Pictured is a Spotted Anemone Shrimp on the tip of a tentacle of a Giant Caribbean Sea Anemone. Living in a commensalism symbiotic relationship, the anemone provides refuge and a home for the shrimp, while the shrimp defends as well as tends to the surrounding area of the anemone, eating parasites and the inherent slime that forms around the anemone. In the years following me finding this anemone, I would come back year after year to visit this same anemone and shrimp due to the anemone being on a stand-alone recognizable rock just off a shipwreck site in the Bahamas known as Laura Wreck.
