Shrimps (Day 1) – Durban Hingebeak Shrimp

Ok – so if you couldn’t tell from the post title, I’m going to do a couple days of shrimp posts… and this is one I actually can positively identify.

These are Durban Hingebeak Shrimp. They are a shrimp that I’ve always wanted to see in the water, and was happy to get the chance to do so. One of the coolest things about these guys is how they move. They move almost like robots with very fast and jerky movements. I should have gotten video, but maybe next time. For now, just check out how cool they look with those beautiful red and white stripes, and those crazy green plaid eyes!
