anemone and a crab host?
I have noticed this red hermit crab hanging around where my rock/flower anemone is. Well the anemone moved out of the hole a few weeks ago, the crab took started to live in the whole. And today the anemone planeted his foot right on the crab heres a crapy pic of it.
Oh my, I hope the crab is ok. But I have to admit thats very funny. I dont think of anemones as thinking creatures, more like plants, but I guess they 'think' somewhat.

That happens all of the time. Most likely due to an accident in your case. The anemone was on the prowl and attached to the hermit. It will eventually find a place the hermit walks to and let go. There are some crabs that attach anemones and sponges to them as camouflage.
