A New Fact I Learned Today, about Shrimp

Every day it seems like something else comes along, that really interests me. I've never had any thought about the features of a shrimp. Yet, today I did a little bit of reading. And I learned that a shimp's heart is located in its head! This is fairly interesting, a simple fact that I never knew before. I wanted to share this with my friends on My Lot. Who would ever believe that any animal or fish would be structured this way? This really amazed me, when I read it on the Internet. Photo: Borrowed from Pixabay

I knew, as also lobsters have their heart in the head. Octopus have blue blood and three hearts.

@kobesbuddy Maybe some people are like that . . . after all, they say some people think too much with their hearts and not with their heads .

Any animal that's alive, has a heart to keep it living.

@kobesbuddy I think sometimes my heart overrules my head.

@1creekgirl Some recommend following our heart. I do this at times, then get it trouble:(

Didn't know that, wonder how that evolved? I have read about a dinosaur that was supposed to have brain near its tail, as well as the usual one. Could have been a joke!

If an animal is living, it needs to have a heart:)

I once heard a fact about starfish that they don’t actually have a brain.They use filtered sea water to pump nutrients through their nervous system that allows them to make a decision.

Hmm. I wonder if it is the biggest part of their anatomy and therefore has more space.

The rest of the shrimp's anatomy is one solid muscle. The heart had to go somewhere else, I guess:)

The entire shrimp, its body is one solid muscle. Where would a heart fit in? Hmmm

I like shrimp but I really had no idea where their hearts are located. You would never be able to give advise to a shrimp to follow their head or to follow their heart-they are too close.

By the time we get the shrimp, they're without both their head and their heart!

Makes sense since most of the body is just the muscle with the intestines running through to the tail end.
