Harlequin Shrimp at Masaplod Dauin


Have you already seen a Harlequin Shrimp while muck diving? It is always exciting when the Harlequin Shrimp (Hymenocera elegans) is spotted. Since this magnificent sea critter obviously did not learn how to camouflage, it is usually hiding in small holes or burrows which makes it hard to find.
