Shrimp's hearts are in their heads.

Shrimp are aquatic animals that are very popular as food. They can be found in both fresh and saltwater. Shrimp have ten legs and instead of a backbone, they have an exoskeleton that provides protection and structure for their bodies.

A shrimp’s heart is located on its head. But if we will 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 shrimp’s thorax can be mistaken as still part of the shrimps head.

But in general, we see a shrimp divided only into 2 parts, the head, and the tail, we see no thorax in it. With that, we can still say that a shrimp’s heart is on its head.
