This wonderful Harlequin Shrimp was seen at Serena Besar in the Lembeh Strait, Sulawesi, Indonesia.
They are max. 4cm long and have extravegant pincers that they use to cut up their prey, the blue Comet Star, which they capture then cut up alive!!
One of the rarest and most sought after critters of divers throughout the world.
