The underwater footage of krill is actually of the anumuran decapod "Munida", probably "Munida gregaria", which are characterised by the backwards swimming, red colouring and claws. Munida are squat lobsters and related to hermit crabs. Antarctic krill "Euphausia superba" belong to a separate Order Euphausicea. They do have a backflip response but swim forward, have little pigmentation being almost transparent in the water, and do not have claws. See more
