What kind of shrimp is this? Betta safe?

So, I found these locally, the ad just says natural coloured fresh water shrimp. Anyone know what they are and if they are ok in with my betta?

If you can't see big/red claws, it should be ok.

K thanks.. I ended up finding cherry shrimp for a buck each, so I think I'll go for those instead! I have a bunch of Java Moss coming my way to wrap the log and have a home for them, so hopefully they don't all become lunch! :D

Size? If that's standard gravel, it's probably some caridina or neocaridina. My guess would be neo, like someone accidentally dropped a red cherry shrimp into a tank full of yellows, and said, "Ooops ... at least we can sell some wild shrimp now."

I blame spelling mistakes on my iPad. You should too!
