Cool peppermint shrimp magic trick!!!

I got home after being away and saw to my dismay, my peppermint shrimp motionless on a rock. Something was missing though, his inards. I soon realized that this shrimp molted his exoskeleton and is doing just fine. Just thought I would share this in case anyone else was not aware of this.
