Apple #35: Shrimp


The last entry was pretty long. Here's a short one. About shrimp, ha-ha.

This is what shrimp look like after you take them out of the water, before they hit the market or your plate:

Shrimp live all over the place, in salt or fresh water, in wetlands and in the open sea. They eat algae, microscopic organisms, and other little plants or animals.

They swim by paddling their "abdominal swimmerets."
