NOAA Photo Library Image - expl1575

Ring of Fire 2006 Expedition. A close-up view of shrimp at NW Rota-1. The reason for the difference in color is not yet clear, however one possibility is that the longer it has been since they last moulted the more material (could be sulphur or bacteria?) that accumulates on their carapace.
