Marine Animal: Stenopus hispidus, (Olivier, 1811)
Business: No business associated
Photo description: It has striking red and white bands across its body with fairly long pinchers and extra long white antennae. Interestingly, members of the Stenopodidae family are known as "Boxing Shrimp" because of the large pinchers on their third set of legs. These pinchers are often held erect and give the Banded Coral Shrimp the appearance of a boxer ready to fight. Habitat: Native to the oceans of Indonesia, Stenopus hispidus is perhaps the most widely distributed shrimp in the sea. It usually hangs upside-down in caves or crevices, with only its antennae emerging from the hole. While molting, the Banded Coral Shrimp will often hide from sight for 1-2 days in the rocks of the reef. This spotting is from 1000 Steps coral reef in Bonaire. I turned the pic upside down for a better view of the shrimps. Olympus XZ-1
