I was netting shrimp out of the tank into the breeder box for shipping, when suddenly, I see 3-5 shrimp POUNCE on a larger female shrimp. At first I thought it was cannibalism, but then I saw her saddle. She went catatonic as the other shrimps latched on. I watched in horror as the new "shrimp ball" of her + the other shrimp began twitching, the twitching turned into bouncing from one side of the breeder box to the other... violently. I can still hear the thud of the shrimp ball hitting the plastic.
There were no less than 3 shrimps lached on at any one time, eventually every shrimp in the village had their way with her, some went twice.
Originally I snapped a pic so I could post a "WTH is wrong with my shrimp!?" thread, but then I couldn't look away.
Mommy, where do baby shrimp come from?
