NOAA Photo Library Image - expl8158

A brownish shrimp and a lithodid crab in close proximity. The crab is possibly thinking about a shrimp dinner. His left claw seems a bit opener than in image expl8154. Perhaps it is getting ready to pounce. The red laser dots are 10 cm apart (about 4 inches) giving an indication of the relative sizes of crab and shrimp.
