On today’s Creation Moments Minute – the amazing relationship between the snapping shrimp and a fish called the goby.
While the snapping shrimp is nearly blind, the goby has excellent eyesight, so the shrimp uses the goby as a blind person uses a Seeing Eye dog. Whenever the shrimp is outside their shared burrow, it always keeps one antenna on the goby. When danger approaches, the goby signals and disappears inside the burrow. The shrimp is right behind him.
Neither the goby nor the shrimp can survive without each other, so pairs are established for life when both goby and shrimp are very young. For this system to work, both goby and shrimp reproductive systems, which differ greatly, are synchronized so that shrimp and goby youngsters are ready to pair at the same time.
This astonishing relationship is another example of our Lord’s attention to the finest details of His creation.
