I was looking at a scallop shell I had from a dive about 2 months ago. On it, I foung 3 or 4 small creatures in the shape of a shrimp/lobster. They are dried out now. The longest one is about 1.25 inches long, the others are about 1/2 that. They have one large claw and one small claw, almost like an atlantic lobster. the claws are quite large in proportion to the body. Unfortunately I don't have a picture to post, although I will try and remedy that. Does anybody have an idea as to what type of shrimp this is?
