Scientists have filmed a shrimp on a treadmill as part of an experiment to see how far the crustaceans travel for food. The treadmill was built into a tank of water and enabled researchers to measure the shrimps activity levels. They found the shrimp can move at speeds of 66ft per minutes and that it can run for three hours before needing a rest. The shrimp in the film doesn't look too impressed.
