Solomons 2006 Favorite of the Day, August 26, 2007    [ Diving,Photography,Travel ]

Sometimes, anemones don’t really look like anemones. This shrimp, a Periclimenes brevicarpalis, also known as a popcorn shrimp, lives in an anemone known as an adhesive anemone. The tentacles on the anemone are very short, giving its surface a textural look almost like coarse velvet. This shrimp and anemone are regular friends on the reef.
