Skeleton Shrimp

skeleton shrimp

This is the oddest thing I’ve seen at the beach in a long time. It was very tiny—maybe half an inch long—and it only caught my eye because it was paler than the seaweed around it and it was wiggling.

So when I got home I looked it up. It’s some variety of Caprella, a skeleton shrimp. If it’s Caprella mutica, it’s invasive, so I hope it’s not that one.
