With a size of just over 4mm, this Skeleton Shrimp is nearly invisible to the naked eye. These amazing creatures pack a mighty punch, when they use their razor-sharp blades to catch prey.

The development of SQUID is visible in the picture. These eggs are about 3mm in diameter and when the little squid inside has used up all the nutrients in that "egg-ball" he is attached to, the see-through shell of the egg breaks open.

Two stages of development of SQUID are visible in the picture. These eggs are about 3mm in diameter and when the little squid inside has used up all the nutrients in that "egg-ball" he is attached to, the see-through shell of the egg breaks open.
