Q. What do these animals have in common?
Water Bugs, cousins of the cockroach.
Not sure what is the name of these Centipede looking Shrimps.

they call it mantis shrimp at seafood restos here in HK,i think. Deep-fried with salt and pepper they taste sooo good. The flesh is white with some purple streaks when cooked. It tastes like a cross between squid, lobster and prawn. i really like your blog, by the way. adding it now to my daily reads apart from marketmanila and of course lori's dessertcomesfirst.
