I’m not sure how I made it this long without knowing about Mantis Shrimp. Holy crap. These things are crazy. I’ve recently begun to browse a few videos on YouTube that showcase some Mantis Shrimp and I’m kinda creeped out.

I’ll probably have nightmares tonight, ha.
So I decided to check into these guys a bit.
- They are mostly solitary and very aggressive
- They are divided into two types: smashers and spearers
- The Smashers can generate enough force with their attack to break glass
- They have some of the most advanced vision of any living species
- Some people eat them as seafood
- Some people keep them in aquariums
