Red-Margin Shrimpgobies with Tiger Snapping Shrimp
Raja Ampat, Indonesia (5 Rocks) – 4/11/2014

These two gobies share a hole in the sand with this shrimp.  The snapping shrimp maintains the hole in the sand while keeping an antenna on the goby so that when the goby senses danger, they all quickly hide in the hole.
