Shrimp Scampering

From the "Uh, OK" file, here is a link to a video of a shrimp on a treadmill. (You have to sit through an ad first.) No, that's not an un-PC statement. It's an actual shrimp (i.e., the crustacean). Why would there be a shrimp on a treadmill? Perhaps it was referred to as a "jumbo shrimp" once too often and got self-conscious. Actually, though:
Researchers measure activity of an exercising shrimp by time, speed and oxygen level.
Ah, of course. Poor thing. He's just a prawn in someone else's game...
