A porcelain crab peers out from a sea anemone in this picture by Your Shot member Thomas Bannenberg, who captured the creatures in waters off the Philippines. Despite its name, the porcelain crab has a strong exoskeleton that it periodically sheds and regrows. This photo was submitted to Your Shot.
