Fiji Islands, 2004
Photograph by Tim Laman

In the waters of the Fiji Islands, an emperor shrimp and a commensal crab nearly vanish in the calico pattern of a large leopard sea cucumber. The sea cucumber provides food for the crustaceans in the form of mucus on its skin and defends itself by ejecting its toxic stomach when danger threatens.

斐济群岛,2004
摄影:Tim Laman

在斐济群岛的海洋里,一只帝王虾和一只共生蟹隐匿在一条大豹纹海参(译注)的斑点纹样中,几乎无法查觉。海参把皮肤上的粘液提供给这些甲壳类生物当作食物,当受到威胁时还会射出有毒的胃进行自卫。

译注:从照片上看这条应该是蛇目白尼参(Bohadschia argus Jaeger),而非豹斑海参(Holothuria pardalis Selenka)
