Shrimp? ID Please


Recommended Posts

Found this washed up at the beach (still alive and now back in water) and was interested to find out what it is.

The second, a little more like a mantis.

Oo, nice, a mantis shrimp! Ghost shrimp (the burrowing kind, not the dozen-odd transparent regular shrimp) look similar, but the little stabby claws give it away. Maybe the poor lil thing got snagged and dropped by a bird? Normally they don't just hang out on the sand.
