Shrimp in action

Sorry, Geeb, I know that the absence of Broadband makes blogs like this difficult but I absolutely could not resist it...

A super-fit shrimp has become a massive internet hit after learning to run on a treadmill as part of a unique science experiment.

Scientists discovered the shrimp's need for speed after it was placed on a home-made exercise machine in a tank of water to see how far it would travel for food.

Scientists were amazed with the results which showed the crustacean could jog at speeds of 66ft per minute and go on for three hours before needing a rest.

The bizarre experiment was filmed and later released onto the internet.

It has now caused huge waves around the world with more than one million logging on to YouTube to watch the jogging shellfish.
