Seems like even the ocean creatures are decorating! The Candy Cane Shrimp and the Christmas Tree Worm are two very colorful and holiday-appropriate sea creatures!
The Candy Cane Shrimp (Alpheus randalli) shares a symbiotic relationship with the goby fish. The shrimp helps dig and maintain a shared burrow, and the goby warns the shrimp if danger is near.
The Christmas Tree Worm (Spirobranchus giganteus) is a burrowing, segmented worm found on coral reefs. It’s only about 1.5 inches long, and it breathes and catches food via its “branches.”
