Horned Shrimp
(Paracrangon echinata)

image of a Horned Shrimp

Image ID: 195-00

Comments : This is a bizarre looking shrimp. You'll notice that in this frame, it is eating another smaller shrimp (unknown species). These shrimp are masters of the disguise on a sandy/muddy bottom like Three Tree Point, and they can be hard to spot. Look carefully, though, and you'll find one of these dragon like little shrimp.
