Peacock Mantis Shrimp. Looks sure are deceiving here because this guy is what's known as a smasher, with club shaped raptorial appendages that it uses to repeatedly smash its prey until it can gain access to the soft tissue for consumption. It is reported to have a "punch" of over 50mph. The fastest punch of any living animal.
Mantis Shrimp . Probably the best eyesight in the entire animal kingdom. Each of the eyes has three visual centers, making them the only animal in the world to have trinocular vision...even if they close one eye. Interesting info at this site.
'A shrimp guards her eggs in this close-up underwater photograph. But the bright colours of the peacock mantis mask a fearsome defence - a punch that feels like being shot by a .22 calibre pistol, and has been known to crack glass in aquariums.' Photo by Jeffrey Chua de Guzman.
Sea Anemone...if I were a designer I would take all my cues from nature. This would inspire a cocktail dress, evening gown or couture swimwear :)
