A Western Clown Anemonefish, Amphiprion ocellaris, snuggles among the tentacles of its host sea anemone, Heteractis magnifica. The anemonefish is immune to the tentacles' sting, allowing it to hide from predatory fish that avoid the tentacles. The anemone also benefits, as the anemonefish will fiercely defend its host. Similan Islands Marine National Park, Thailand, Andaman Sea
