Squat Urchin Shrimp in HD


Coral Morphologic has rolled out another amazing clip of a Crustacean hitch hiking on an Echinoderm. The black and white Squat Urchin Shrimp is seen hiding among the spines of a black and white West Indian Sea Egg (a type of sea urchin). The Squat Urchin Shrimp will take any opportunity to eat up any detritus it can find, but on occasion it will also eat tissue from the urchin. The urchin, besides offering an epidermal snack from time to time, also provides a great deal of protection for the shrimp.
