Saw-blade Shrimp (Tozeuma armatum)
Also known as the banded tozeuma shrimp the saw-blade shrimp is a species of broken back shrimp (Hippolydiae) that occurs throughout the Indo-West Pacific and the Red Sea. Like other members of Tozeuma T. armatum has a very long and slender body/appendages. This elongated appearance likely helps the shrimp camouflage itself along the corals it inhabits. Like other crustaceans that inhabit corals T. armatum's coloration is highly varied and typically matches the coloration of its host coral.
