海裡常常會看到一團像羽毛的東西,會黏在防寒衣上的那坨東西
俗稱海羽毛或是海百合
被打到會非常痛,但是有許多共生的小生物一起躲在裡面
海百合蝦就是其中一種,其種類眾多,且隨著躲藏的海百合呈現不同的顏色
照片中這一類的海百合蝦辨認特稱為身體上有兩道對稱的顏色線條
像這隻躲在黑白色的海百合裡面,其顏色則呈現黑白

It is very often to see a cluster feather-liked stuff and stick on our wet suit.
That is called a Crinoid.
It's toxic so it hurts badly when getting contact with it.
Despite that, the Crinoid makes a good host that quite a few critters commensal with it.
The Twin-stripe Crinoid shrimp is one of them.
While there are many different kinds of Crinoid shrimps, 
the Twin-shrimp often can be identified by two-tone colours the same as the colour of crinoid host.
Variety of colours, the crinoid shrimp in the above photo adapt itself in the black and white to match the host.
