Tiger Pistol Shrimp Alpheus bellulus: sisyphean task, useless but funny to look at!

It is always nice to look at someone’s work, especially when it is done with endless enthusiasm.

With a soft sand bottom, it is easier to dig a home than to maintain it. Watch this video and you will understand why!
