Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits shallow water especially in upper intertidal zone (Ref. 3510, 80410) in reef flats and tidal flats under rocks and boulders or inside coral or rock crevices (Ref. 87055). It actively moves in between coral heads for prey (Ref. 80410). Some members of the order Stomatopoda pair for life and some come together only to mate. Males produce sperm ducts rather than spermatophores; females can brood a maximum of 50,000 eggs. Life cycle: Eggs hatch to a planktonic zoea which lasts for 3 months (Ref. 833).
