Tyron Nudibranch + Shrimp

Hypselodoris tryoni


Nudibranch are known to be slow crawler and at times, they can be found hardly moving either resting stationery or when laying eggs. And sometimes, they collected hitch-hiker as in this pic, an Emperor Shrimp - Zenopontonia rex, previously known as Periclimenes imperator). The Shrimp benefits by getting a free ride and when they needs to feed, they will go to the edge of the Nudibranch and picking up food from the bottom as can be seen in Pic#2.
