DFW shrimp?

Has anyone in the DFW had any luck finding anything outside of CRS and cherries out here?

Thanks
Warren

They've labeled them as Mexican wood shrimp, I've never look anything up about them because I like bamboo shrimp a lot more, so they may have been mislabeled

I just searched for Mexican wood shrimp, couldn't find anything on google, but I did look a little deeper and seems they have mislabeled Cameroon armored shrimp

There *are* Atya in Mexico (e.g., A. scabra) ... but none of these, as far as I know, have yet found their way into the U.S. trade. It'd be exciting if that's what they actually were – could you get a photo?

Atya Gabonensis more commonly known as Giant African shrimp, or as i am beginning to suspect, also the Vampire shrimp.
