2 Emperor Shrimps on Nudibranch

On a muck dive this week we saw a unusual high number of Ceratosoma Nudibranchs in different colours – yellow, white and red. I stopped counting at around 20. The nicest one of them was without doubt this one: It had 2 Emperor Shimps hitchhiking a ride on its back. I am always happy when i find these colourful shrimp on nudibranchs – but finding two of them on a single nudibranch is always something special. I am also very thankful, that the shrimps did not pick a red ceratosoma … they make a much better contrast on the yellow one 😉
