Cleaner Shrimp feature in Daily Mail

In August I photographed my son Russell diving off Bali, Indonesia, and getting his teeth cleaned by the cleaner shrimp that usually serve the needs of the local fish.  The UK newspaper Daily Mail has now published the story.  See it on DailyMail website:

 

Diver Russell Laman (age 13)  visiting a "cleaning station" on the reef, where fish come to have parasites and debris removed from their skin and teeth by shrimp.  The White-banded Cleaner Shrimp (Lysmata amboinensis),  recognize Russell's mouth as a source of food, and enters and begins to clean his teeth.
