Bumblebee Shrimp

Sometimes you go through life in Lembeh and a critter evades you for what seems to be forever.  For me the unicorn has been the Bumblebee Shrimp.  I could have seen it long ago but was busy with other things / camera not ready, too lazy to go – The usual excuses! Now i need to get the Psychadelic Batwing Slug and i’ll have to think of something new after that!

So anyway, here we go!  Some pictures of the bumblebee shrimp (Gnathophyllum americanum), which apparently feeds on the tube feet of echinoderms, which may explain why it was found with a bunch of sea-urchins nearby!


Oksin had a go with the camera as well and got a great shot!
