In shallow waters

Do not get too excited now.. You are about to learn about one of the coolest and the wideliest-distributed stomadopods found in shallow waters (Hatziolos, 1983).  If just shown a picture, you may think our species, Pseudoquilla ciliata, resemble cray fish, an organism you may have even eaten for dinner before.  This species though would be pretty hard to capture and eat! Throughout this website you will learn why this speicies be tough to capture and to eat as well as where it can found hiding, what it eats, how it captures its prey and its means of reproducing.
