Last night I had the weirdest dream where I was walking but struggling between steps I couldn’t tell where I was but there were people around me then I fell on my knees and put my hand on my belly and there was a broken spear head inside me then I said “would you look at that” I didn’t feel any pain when I touched it then I laid on my back and everyone started yelling “NO!!!” as they crowded around me, I pulled out the spread head out of my body and still felt nothing I started telling everyone “it’s ok, I’m ok” And kept repeating “I’m ok” felt very tired my eyes were closing then completely closed ALL in a clam manner, then I woke up it was about 3:30 in the morning and I’m still trying to figure out what this means 🤔🤔🤔

Boxing champions of the deep.
Mantis shrimp are one of my favorite animals and I could go on for days about these amazing creatures, but I'll try to keep this short! Mantis shrimp aren't actually shrimp, they belong to a separate order called Stomatopoda.
They can be classified into two broad subgroups, the smashers and the spearers. This is in reference to their "raptorial appendages" or their forelegs, which come equipped with either clubs or spears. The spearers use their raptorial appendages to spear soft bodied prey such as fish.
The smashers, like the peacock mantis shrimp (Odontodactylus scyllarus) pictured, use their clubs to break open the shells of their prey, including crabs and snails. They deliver these punches at 50mph with the force of a .22 caliber bullet! This blinding speed causes the water between their club and target to boil and produces "cavitation bubbles". The collapse of these bubbles produce a second impact as well as "sonoluminescence" which simply means they make light. Even if the initial punch misses the target, the shock wave from the collapse of these cavitation bubbles can stun or kill their prey.
