Blind shrimp and shrimp Goby

Date June 29, 2009

Terribly tedious to get close to, the blind shimp tenaciously hawls loads of sand out of its burrow in Pulau Hantu’s reef slope as a Shrimp goby stands guard at the entrance. Shrimp gobies are extremely alert and skittish. With its tail, the goby signals to the shrimp if it is safe to some out. If the goby returns into the burrow, it can take a tremendously long length of time before it re-emerges so the burrow of the duo with the shrimp and goby in action, had to be carefully and slowly approached.
