    Talking NEW Shrimp Species Discovered in New Zealand: "Caridina Bos Primigenius"

    On my travels in NZ, I came across this previously undescribed species of shrimp with markings similar to a Taiwan Bee King Kong.

    Much larger & hardier than your average Taiwan Bee!

    Interestingly enough the locals breed them for food rather than pets.

    Unfortunately: I did not have a big enough breather bag.

    As I am, the 1st to describe it, I shall name it: "Caridina Bos Primigenius"

    Dude! You do not have to go all the way to New Zealand for that.
    They have the same type in Hemel Hempstead farm, just bring a truck, it is not too far from Bedfordshire. =P
