Does anyone have an irrational fear of shrimp? or more specifically, airbourne shrimp? I can't seem to handle them if they escape and when they jump it actually makes me scream like a big girls blouse! Even removing them from my tank to put them in a temp home really freaked me out, you've never seen someone handle a net so quickly. I remember when I first netted one, as I moved the net out of the water I presumed it would just stay in the net like a fish would, but it suddenly crawled up the net and onto the handle and started advancing towards me. Before I could hurl it back into the tank it decided to jump and landed on the floor, at which point it began advancing towards the rug in the front room. That freaked me out. The other day I found one dead in my kitchen area, it had turned a golden brown colour and gone hard, perfectly preserved, whiskers and all. I kept it actually because it seemed a shame to throw it away. not sure why I've done that. Is it just me or does anyone get freaked out by them leaping around? It's not just shock it is literally I have to get away from them; I guess like a very servere arachnophobia. Do you have any shrimp stories?
