weird RNA pattern

We know that total RNA of eukaryotes will give us two distinct bands for
28S and 18S RNA on the denaturing gel. However my invertebrate RNA samples
from mussel and shrimp, show one thick band at 18S and a very faint band
at 28S (ratio about 10:1) which is different from the mouse's and
zebrafish's RNA (ratio 1:2) run together as control. I don't think that
this is due to degradation. Does anybody know what is going on ?
