Randall's Pistol Shrimp*

Species Availability:   No stock

The Randall's Pistol Shrimp or Candy Cane Shrimp, (Alpheus randalli), forms a mutualistic partnership with gobies, most notably Amblyeleotris spp.. or Prawn Gobies. In the wild, the fish warns the pistol shrimp of danger and the shrimp burrows and provides the fish with a home. This species is a Pistol Shrimp, meaning it uses its claw to produce a very audible sonic boom that stuns its prey, or helps defend itself or its fish partner from predators. These small shrimp are among the loudest species in the ocean.

This species requires UPS Next Day Air or Express Mail and does not qualify for free shipping.
