Did you know?
The life cycle of river shrimp (Gammarus Pulex) is quite intricate. The male will clutch the female before determining which one is likely to yield a lot of eggs. The male will then carry his chosen mate for a number of weeks before her skin is shed, enabling the male to mate with her. Afterwards, he releases her, and she will carry the developing young in what is called a “brooding pouch”. After around 28 days, the young shrimps are ready to venture out of the brood pouch, and a few months later are able to breed and find a mate for themselves. As the female river shrimp can produce up to 50 young each month, it does not take very long at all for a large population to emerge.
