Donald Duck Shrimp
Leander plumosus

 

These bizarre shrimp have an elongated rostrum which gives them a beak-like appearance, and from that their name.

They really are quite extraordinary critters and are always a joy to find. This one was found on my first dive of 2012, a great way to start the New Year.
