Skeleton shrimp behavior

18 April 2014 - 05:40 AM

Hi there,

A supermacro behavior question...

Got any ideas for what is happening : I have no clue what this Anilao skeleton shrimp is actually doing?

The larger image size shows that it's using its pointed claw to drill a hole into the egg pouch, I don't know whether it's liberating the eggs or looking for a (cannibal?) snack... are these shrimps eggs btw?

Thnks for shedding some light on this scene...

Nudi on a pyrosome + Amphipod(?) from Anilao

11 April 2014 - 03:19 PM

Would someone help me Id. this small nudi I found feasting on a floating pyrosome in Anilao.

Not more than 8mm, the pyrosome was drifting in blue water 5-7m deep.

Would be also happy to have confirmation of this inhabitant found in a white tunicate : amphipod? (Anilao - Kirby's Rock / 15m)

Thingy/nudibranch in Tulamben

17 December 2013 - 02:57 PM

Hello, would you pls help me identifying that critter taken in Tulamben/Bali area not more than 2cm /1 inch I would say.

the image was cropped 30%, taken at relatively shallow depth some 10-12m on th eend of the dive. I couldn't even figure whether it was the back or the head of that thingy... I believe it should a kind of nudibranch, Melibe or Marionia or am I completely wrong?

 

Thanks for your help.
