A male shrimp was spotted protecting a pregnant female shrimp in a bathtub in central China.

In the clip, shot in Pingdingshan City in Henan Province on June 20, a male shrimp uses its claws to encircle a pregnant female shrimp and pushes other shrimps away when they swim nearby.

The shrimp were caught from a river and fed as pets, reports said.
