Caption

Goby and shrimp symbiosis. Spotted shrimp goby (Amblyeleotris guttata) keeping watch while its companion fine-striped snapping shrimp (Alpheus ochrostriatus) clears out their burrow. This shrimp creates and maintains a burrow, from which it forages for tiny food particles. The shrimp has poor eyesight, and stays in constant contact with its goby using its antennae. The goby keeps a lookout for predators, warning the shrimp to retreat if one appears. If a predator gets too close, both shrimp and goby dart into the burrow. They also share the hole at night. Filmed in the Philippines.
