This scary looking, semitransparent creature is the newest species of skeleton shrimp discovered in a reef cave offshore of California's Catalina Island. The good new is, that this heavily armed caprellid amphipod is pretty tiny so you be worrying about another underwater creature wanting a taste of you.





The one on the left is a female and the bigger one with a huge pair of claws is the male. The newly discovered species were brought to the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa.
