Pera Debelius

Also known as the pouch shrimp or mango shrimp, Pera debelius is an arthropod that is indigenous to the indo-pacific. They are known for their over-grown belly, up to two inches high, containing large amount of semen and reproductive organs. Their reproductive organs also contain special protein that is toxic and smells bad to most predators, protecting them especially during the summer mating season.
