Hitchhickers...now thinking baby lobsters???? w/pic

I received my LR.com order today (1 day late due to shipping problems) and was chiseling up some rock to cure and use for rubble in my sump. In the 1 big rock I found 4 of these guys. I don't think they are mantis or pistols anymore.........they kind of do look like baby lobsters and they curl up their tails like one. Any thoughts?

Sorry for the bad pic and posting here, but it's killing me, I've gotta know.



Thanks,
Jim

Those look like small pistol shrimp.

Lando, I have looked at pics on the web of pistols, but the ones i've seen don't have the thick tails. Maybe it's just the pics I've seen. They very well could be. If so, would you put them in your main tank or fuge.

I noticed the tails as well. Looking at the front of the animal it looks more like a pistol shrimp. See if you can get a better pic for ID.
