As gorgeous as this guy is, he is one bad shrimp. There are two basic types of Mantis shrimp. The first is known as a “clubber” they have bony structures on the end of their front legs that they can fire out with extreme speed and power to smash the shells of small crustaceans. The second is known as a “stabber” and they have needle sharp bony ends on their front legs that they fire out to stab small fish,etc.. This guy was not too happy to have me in his face with my camera and kept charging at me, luckily he was a little guy only about 6 inches. They have been known to be as large as 18 inches in some parts of the world! Yikes.. Hope you like him!
