I believe it is a stiletto shrimp, and it is not uncommon to see eggs inside these!
My trip report from 2/5 has one: (click-thru to see the eggs)

Jesse even got a pic of one laying an egg on another dive!

Cool find!

I'm thinking this shrimp looks kinda full of eggs,

especially when I compare it to this one.

But I'm not familiar with these things, so am I way off here? Or did we catch a glimpse of the next generation at Redondo yesterday?
