Ghost Shrimp

P1040731

The Ghost Shrimp (also known as Glass Shrimp) body is transparent, and an orange to yellow colored spot is visible in the center of the tail. The body is segmented, and features ten sets of legs. The first four sets have tiny claws that aid the shrimp in feeding. Ghost Shrimp are relatively small invertebrates, reaching a maximum size of only 2″.

We found the critters off the depths of Pescador Island, west side claiming the sea anemone as their abode, silently crawling on the tentacles.
