Giant Shrimp-Like Creature Pulled From Water By Florida Fisherman
Chances are you’ve never seen a shrimp like this before.
A Florida fisherman got more than he bargained for when he pulled an 18-inch-long shrimp-like creature from the water while doing some night time fishing from a dock this week in Fort Pierce, Florida, a coastal city about a two-hour drive north from Miami.
Steve Bargeron, who was fishing on the same dock where the creature was snagged, snapped the photos above and shared them with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Service.
They’re usually found in the warm waters of the Indian and Pacific oceans, and their lineage can be traced back more than 500 million years.
