Caption: The Tidepool Ghost Shrimp, Callianassa affinis, lives in burrows that it creates in sand and sediments, typically below large intertidal rocks. The species is found along southern California beaches south into Mexico. A number of species live in a symbiotic relationship with this shrimp in its burrow including clams, other shrimp, crabs, worms, and a blind goby, Typhlogobius californiensis. This individual was photographed in Southern California, 2010.
