Shrimp identification

My LFS has these shrimp in called rhino shrimp. Its a saltwater shrimp and they didn't seem to know anything about them. I couldn't find any reference to a saltwater shrimp called a rhino shrimp and couldn't find anything similar. Anybody know what these are called or have seen them?Click image for larger version

I have never seen such a thing in the hobby personally, but this is what I was able to find.

The Rhino shrimp are normally seen in FW. Apparently like several other varieties, of creatures, like Amano shrimp and Nerite snails, they breed in SW. With shrimp young having a larval planktonic phase.

Edit: The pics you have do not look quite the same, though, there are many, many shrimp which live in similar environments and look similar, thinking of Ghost shrimp as one, or grass shrimp and looking similar, are hundreds of varieties world wide (I read that, lol )

New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?
