Diver Lets Shrimp Clean His Teeth

Because apparently under the sea anything goes, this is a video of diver Patrick Seligman allowing a Pacific cleaner shrimp (Lysmata amboinesis) to clean his teeth off the coast of Maui. Pacific cleaner shrimp have developed a symbiotic relationship with many marine fish, being compensated for their cleaning services with edible parasites and dead tissue from the mouths of their patients. Yum! Still, I’m surprised it was willing to clean Patrick’s teeth — he certainly doesn’t look like a fish. Maybe it just sees teeth and goes for it. That’s risky behavior. Or — OR — maybe it thought Patrick was a starfish. As in PATRICK STAR. God I slay me!
