Coleman Shrimp (Periclimenes colemanii) on Venoumous Fir
Gallery quality underwater photographic print by Paul Waldeck, available framed or unframed in several sizes.

Coleman Shrimp are found only on the venomous sea urchin (Asthenosoma varium). The Coleman shrimp use their pincers to remove some of the venomous spines from an area of the urchin and make their home in this space.

Coleman Shrimp are usually found in pairs - the female being larger of the two. In this image the male is just visible to the left of the female. The Coleman Shrimp live symbiotically with the urchin. The shrimp are protected from predators by the urchin's poisonous spines and in turn aid the urchin by cleaning and removing parasites and other unwanted matter.

Note the very effective camouflage used by the Coleman Shrimp-they are hardly differentiated from the spines of the urchin.

Photographed in Papua New Guinea
