Russell Laman with Cleaner Shrimp

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.
