What shrimp is this and what's inside it?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys - I found this shrimp on a night dive in Grand Cayman this year on Sunset Reef. I do not know what kind it is - can someone ID it for me? Plus, the shrimp is transluscent and it looks like it has eggs inside of it. Not sure what that is right behind its eyes. Is that part of the shrimp or has it swallowed something? It was very small and was out in the sandy area of the reef. It had a small hole it would go in and out off. I took these shots with my 105.

 

Any help welcome. Thanks - DiverPam
