kimberley110 Eagle Prawn
kimberley110 is a photo I call eagle prawn, not because that is the name others use, rather because...
I think it looks like it has an eagles beak.
It looks kind of bold and cheeky.
I think it is a juvenile of one of the many Kimberley prawns or shrimps.
While this animal is most likely a well known species...
...there are many "un-named species" of marine animals on the Kimberley coast
...because so little scientific research has been undertaken to date.
The WA museum has an ongoing marine research program for the Kimberley, and ...
...a new Kimberley Marine Science Station is being developed at Cygnet Bay...
...north of Broome, Australia
