Marine Isopod

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

The marine isopod or sand flea (Caprella) is an omnivorous feeder that eats detritus, one-celled plants, small invertebrates. It is preyed upon by shrimp, sea anemones and several fish species. Females of some species of skeleton shrimp apparently kill the males after mating using a poisonous claw.
