 Got  to  see  some  strange  behavior  of  a  shrimp  wanted  to  check  whether  someone  did  come  across  such  incident...  Smile  
 
 I  got  few  fire  orange  shrimps  last  week  and  added  them  to  the  quarantine  tank…After  sometime  time  I  checked  the  tank  to  see  how  they  are  getting  assimilated  to  the  new  surroundings.   Sadly  there  was  one  shrimp  that  was  lying  on  its  side  without  any  apparent  movement  of  its  body  or  legs.   Sad  Thought  the  shrimp  is  dead  and  wanted  to  remove  it,  then  strangely  another  shrimp  that  was  near  by  the  one  lying  came  closer  to  it  and  started  to  nibble  it…I  thought  it’s  just  checking  out  the  neighbor  but  his  repeated  action  made  me  gaze   the  happening.  The  shrimp  repeatedly  lifted  the  one  lying  and  tried  to  make  it  stand  in  normal  posture…I  thought  it  is  just  a  coincidence,  but  this  guy  tried  it  again  and  again.   Shocked  Sadly  the  shrimp  that  was  lying  did  not  respond  and  feel  back  to  the  tank  floor.
 
 I  remember  seeing  the  same  kinda  behavior  in  African  elephants  shown  on  Nat  Geo  where  a  herd  tries  to  lift  the  sick  or  wounded  member’s  repeatedly.  Also  they  do  not  give  up  and  wait  for  the  one  to  recover…I  noted  in  another  program  where  a  wild  buffalo  refuse  to  give  up  on  its  dead  calf  to  cheetah.  
 
 Was  quite  astonished  to  see  this  behavior  in  shrimp…wherein  inverts  are  considered  to  have  lowest  intelligence.  And  to  my  surprise  the  one  that  I  thought  to  be  dead  recovered  after  sometime   Cheering

 First  thing  about  shrimps  is  that  they  are  scavengers.  The  shrimp  which  came  to  nibble  wwas  not  checking  but  pretty  much  eating  the  "dead"  shrimp.  Reason  of  death  could  be  of  a  non-cycled  tank,  fish  or  water  parameters.  I've  seen  my  rcs  nibbling  on  a  dead  shrimp.  It  took  them  a  day  to  eat  it  completely.  
 
 Do  put  pics  of  your  shrimps.  I  want  to  see  it!

 I  also  believe  in  scavenging  instinct  than  helping.  I  feel  that  these  invertebrates  are  not  evolved  to  that  extent  to  provide  help.
