Prawn Eats Snake !

April 14, 2015

While National Park Service biological technician, Anne Farahi, surveyed for freshwater animals in a stream in War in the Pacific National Historical Park on Guam, she came across an unexpected sight. A Tahitian prawn (Macrobrachium lar), presumed to be native to Guam, in the midst of eating an invasive brown tree snake (Boiga irregulars) which must have fallen into the water. These extremely invasive snakes are notorious for decimating the native birds of Guam. Watch this aggressive prawn defending its meal against other hungry prawns.
