There are so many crustaceans! And we still find ones that we can't find descriptions of.
This week we found this one. A small shrimp, approx 1-1.5cm long. He was living on a hard plate coral, which a unusually. If you look very closely you can see it has very transparent legs and long transparent pincers that push out in front. It also has what look like very strange eyes coming out of the top of it's head.
The coral it is on has it's flower-like polyps extended and the shrimp looks like someone stealthily making his way through thick undergrowth. Very interesting to watch.
If anyone knows this species, please let me know.
