Prawns are scavengers, feeding on scraps left from other animal’s meals and so are known as the cleaners of the rockpool. They have a see through body which makes them difficult to spot. The best way to tell the difference between a prawn and a shrimp is that prawns have stripes and shrimps have spots.
