Read full entry
Biology/Natural History: Crangon shrimp are common on sandy bottoms, where their camouflage helps them blend in well. If disturbed they will often swim down to the sand, rest their ventral surface on it, and quickly burrow out of sight (probably using their pleopods--see the photo below).
