TRUTH !!
A shrimps heart is located on its head. If we base it on the exact anatomy
of a shrimp, its heart is located on its thorax just after the head, but
both the head and the thorax are covered with a single exoskeleton only,
that is why the shrimps thorax can be mistaken as still part of the shrimps
head.
