Boxer Shrimp; Stenopus hispidus

Boxer Shrimp are a feature of diving trips to Sail Rock and other rocky dive sites, where they wait in the crevices to offer their cleaning services.
They are different from the usual Caridean Shrimps in that their 3rd pair of walking legs have the big claws (rather than the 1st set). Maybe that’s why they are called boxers…
