Goby with Pistol Shrimp

Goby with Pistol Shrimp: The pistol shrimp and goby are living together in a symbiotic relationship. The shimp is good in digging tunnels, but it is blind. With one of its antennas it always keeps in contact with the goby, which watches out for danger. If one gets too close, it wiggles its tail and the shrimp disappears in the tunnel. If one gets even closer, both disappear in their tunnel for several minutes. Dive #364: Sabang Laguna, Mindoro Island, Philippines.
