Title Giant red shrimp
Description A giant red shrimp (possibly Aristeomorpha foliacea) hovers just above the sea floor. Though it appears to be walking on the sediment, it is actually swimming. You can see how quickly it can move, courtesy of a playful eel. This shrimp is about 25 to 30 cm in length. Narration by Jessica Stephen, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.

Tree of Life Media Use Survey

The information you provide in this survey will help us improve the ToL media collection. We are trying to find out what kinds of people are using our images, movies, sounds, etc., what they are using them for, and what we could do to make the collection more useful to them.

How do you use this movie? If you are a teacher/professor/librarian: At what level do you teach/learn? How old are you? Where in the world do you live/learn/teach? Do you have any suggestion on how we could improve the Tree of Life media collection?
