Is it about 2-2.5"? Based of the picture and it not having any specific markings (strips or dots etc) I'd have to say this is a Malaya Shrimp.

Im not sure, because the malaya has the body divided in two parts, the skin is like metallic and the eyes are bigger. I thought that it could be the malaya, but there are many differences

Thank you.

yes, with the humans its the same, there are caucasians, africans, indian, chinise but all of them are humans. Thats why i know that i have a shrimp and not a frog but the metallic skin against the wrinkle skin...and the body in two parts (like a king prawn)! this is the most amazing, the mine has one-piece body
