Mantis shrimp - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. They have powerful claws that they use to attack and kill prey by spearing, stunning, or dismemberment. Called "sea locusts" or "thumb splittlers".

Mantis shrimp or stomatopods are marine crustaceans, the members of the order Stomatopoda. They are neither shrimp nor mantids, but receive their name purely from the physical resemblance to both the terrestrial praying mantis and the shrimp.

Mantis shrimp vs octopus. Respect for these little guys (Mantis Shrimp). They're SO cool! And their little legs crack me up. :-D Mantis Shrimp have the most advanced eyesight in the animal kingdom. They can see TEN TIMES more colours than we can.
