It's finally taking form. Hope to finish it up soon. Thanks for sitting there so patiently @adigreg #yatted #reef #aquaria #clownfish #peacockmantis I miss my tank..

Don’t let looks fool you—these beautiful crustaceans, known as Peacock Mantis Shrimp (Odontodactylus scyllarus), are ferocious undersea predators. The colorful stomatopods hunt with clubbed forelimbs, and can wallop their prey at the speed of a .22 caliber bullet--enough to break aquarium glass.
When they aren’t using their specially adapted striking-appendage, they fold the limb under their body, where it compresses into a saddle-shaped spring. The animal’s vision is among the most advanced on the planet: they have two eyes with three focal points each, with light receptors that can detect both ultraviolet and infrared ends of the spectrum. Consequently, these remarkable crustaceans can see colors that humans can’t perceive.

This eye belongs to a #peacockmantis shrimp. One of the most developed eyes in the natural world. #amazing

Meet Morty! He's a young peacock mantis! Never knew something so small could have so much personality :P #mantis #peacockmantis

My new gal, peacock mantis. Can't get a better picture at the minute she's due to moult and is missing a leg. So once she's grew and got her leg back I'll get better pictures of this beauty #peacockmantis

Another incredible bit of macro-photography of this Peacock Mantis Shrimp (Odontodactylus scyllarus) taken by our current Scuba Instructor, @rachel.clare.taylor 😍

Found throughout the Indo-Pacific, these crustaceans have the most complex eyes in the animal kingdom! They have 16 colour receptive cones and can detect ten times more colour than humans (who have just three-colour receptive cones)! Further addding to their artillery as formidable predators, they can not only move each eye idependently, but their appenages are used to literrally punch their prey at a speed 50 times faster than a blink of an eye with enough power to break through the shell of an unfortunate mollusc 💪🏼👊🏽! But do not fear, they grow from 2 to 7 inches, so as long as you dont go poking around inside one of their burrows, you will be safe - but still, appreciate from a distance!

Third series of Peacock Mantis Shrimp. It is one of beautiful shrimps I have ever seen and perhaps a shrimp that can throw the fastest punch at the force of a riffle bullet. The shrimp is known to be able to shatter an aquarium glass! #scuba
