Pom Pom Crabs

(The crabs are scorpions :O)
"Pom Pom Crabs" are crabs who walk around with sea anemones in their pincers, and use their stingers to fend off predators.
I'll sting you bird!
If a Pom Pom Crab loses it's anemone, it will find another crab to steal one from.
They will then battle for the anemone.
The anemone will tear in half, which is how anemones reproduce. This means that these crabs are the first to force asexual reproduction on other creatures.
No sea anemones of this species have been found in the wild without a crab. There are theories about what happened.
These crabs have been tested on extensively in labs.
