Goby and pistol shrimp: an unusual couple!

Goby and pistol shrimp: an unusual couple!

You have already certainly heard of the symbiotic relationship between anemones and clownfish, but did you know about the one between the goby fish and the pistol shrimp?

While the shrimp builds a burrow, where they can both live together, the goby fish guards the house! As the shrimp has bad vision, with a simple flick of the tail the goby will warn the shrimp if a predator comes close to the burrow.

This unusual couple shows well that love knows no barriers and comes in all shapes, forms and colors.
