Hermit and dead cleaner shrimp


Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard of a hermit crab killing a cleaner shrimp?

Sure, they are constantly looking for food and I can understand them killing a snail for its shell, but attacking a live shrimp??? And the shrimp was bigger than the crab too.


I have had scarlet hermits before without issues... my latest addition seems to be far more aggressive.


Not sure what he is - if you can make anything out from this particularly bad picture, he's very dark green with yellow/beige bands at the end of his legs.


Ripped the head right off my cleaner shrimp :(
