Sexy Shrimp

... No, really, that's what it's called.

Thor amboinensis, also known as the Sexy Shrimp, lives symbiotically on another invertebrate--most often a sea anemone--trading cleaning service for protection. It's called "sexy" because it twerks its little tail as it dances around its anemone.

This shrimp, found in Anilao, Philippines, was about half an inch long.
