Video—Penaeus vannamei Eating Pellets

 

This one-minute, high-definition, close-up video shows an adult Penaeus vannamei gathering and consuming feed pellets in a clear-water aquarium.  Yes, this is the best video of a shrimp eating pellets that I’ve ever seen!  The shrimp forms a basket with its forward-most pereopods and its maxillipeds that holds several pellets directly under its mouth—while it munches away.
