Alpheidae is a family of caridean snapping shrimp characterized by having asymmetrical claws, the larger of which is typically capable of producing a loud snapping sound. Other common names of these species include pistol shrimp or alpheid shrimp.

The Sexy Shrimp is also commonly known as the High Tailed Shrimp, Anemone Shrimp and Squat Shrimp. It is also referred to as the Dancing Shrimp due to the way it moves its body. They move by walking slowly across the sea floor but when fleeing from a predator, they swim backwards quickly by curling and uncurling their abdomen. This is known as the caridoid escape reaction.

Slow-motion filming has shown that Frogfish suck in prey in 6 milliseconds! It's so fast that other animals cannot see it happen. Blink and you'll miss it too.
