Flower Ghost Shrimp (Neotrypaea californiensis)

Common name: Flower Ghost Shrimp, Tide pool Shrimp

Found this in the dry sand at very low tide beach, seemed to be struggling a lot. In the beginning I thought it's start changing their skin, but not. It was struggling because of the body start gets dry I guess. so moved it gently to the very shallow water 30cm away.  
Finally this shrimp start gets really active in very shallow water and digging a whole which somebody already live in....

But as you can see it's holding a lot of orange color eggs under the body.

Enjoy the Video.
