Don’t be fooled – these aren’t the leftovers of some mermaid’s egg white omelet. It’s just an Egg Shell Shrimp (Hamopontonia corallicola) that is perfectly camouflaged as, well, an egg shell. Its coloring also comes in handy because of its constant surroundings. It’s normally found on the mushroom coral Heliofungia sp though you’d be hard-pressed to actually spot it in person since the blending in power is quite strong with this one.
