Harlequin shrimp are crustaceans, like crabs and lobsters. Like other crustaceans, they have hard shells, called exoskeletons, but the shell of the harlequin shrimp is much thinner than that of other crustaceans.
The harlequin shrimp usually spends its life with a partner, and together they hunt and defend their homes. They live on and around coral reefs.
