body and whiplike antennae and jumper's legs"--in her web.
Amazingly, these endangered giants reach this size by feeding almost entirely on tiny, shrimplike
crustaceans called krill.
Its various populations should therefore have a lot of genetic variability for natural selection to act upon, which would help the shrimplike
copepods adapt in response to warming.
The most common theory goes that, by lighting up, they shine a spotlight on one of their shrimplike
predators, thereby luring in one of its larger predators, like a tiny baitfish.
Fisheries biology of shrimps and shrimplike
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report to show genetic separation among populations of a freshwater shrimplike
form, with abbreviated larval development, inhabiting South American drainages.

Next, bone-eating Osedax worms, shrimplike
amphipods, and tanner crabs grind away at the bones.
Phytoplankton-feeding krill are shrimplike
animals of the crustacean family.
Blue whales migrated early this year from Mexican waters to Southern California in search of thumb- sized, shrimplike

Scientists had thought these shrimplike
creatures lived only in the upper ocean, says Andrew Clarke of the British Antarctic Survey based in Cambridge, England.
