A sea anemone and a hermit crab share a snail shell, providing a wonderful example of commensalism. The anemone has stinging cells that help protect the crab from predators and benefits from being transported as well as receiving scraps from the crab's feeding. When the crab grows and moves to a larger shell , it brings the anemone along to share its new home.
