Odd spot inside ghost shrimp

Madeline Peterson

Ok, so my ghost shrimp has what looks like a weird internal organ inside it that is not present in other shrimp. At fist I thought it was her stomach, but you can see the stomach now that she's eaten, and it's right beside the weird green spot. Any ideas? I've included a picture.

I’m pretty sure that’s normal. All of mine look like that

The rest of mine don't, though.

Not sure if you're still looking for an answer here, but I'm pretty sure the "green spot" organ you've mentioned is her ovaries. If your other shrimp don't have it they're males.
