Neon Red Lobster

Neon Red Lobsters live in a suit of armor.  Their color is so bright they can look like a neon light. As they grow, they shed their shells.  Soft-shelled (naked) crayfish are totally vulnerable until their shells re-harden and need a place to hide. Neon red lobsters, like all decapods, grow by eating lots of food and sucking in lots of water.  This actions eventually cracks their shells open,  then they wriggle out of their former armor and hide while their new larger exoskeleton hardens.  Neon red lobsters cannot be kept with small shrimp or small schooling fish and will act like bullies to defend their home.
