    A new kind of mantis I wanna get

    Ok, technically it's a Mantis shrimp but at, 16" and the raptor claws? Oh yes!

    Lysiosquillina maculata Zebra Mantis Shrimp

    and:

    I like the caveat on the second link:

    "We recommend that you keep it in an acrylic tank, as a fully grown mantis shrimp has been noted of being able to shatter glass walls of most aquariums."

    Lots of cool videos, even some handling videos! http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...is+shrimp&aq=f

    If it can bust glass I'm not holding it! LOL

    I think there's a new boss in the undersea world.

    I saw a peacock mantis at the fish shop a while back they are so pretty with the iridescent purples and greens (trade color for size this one is smaller). But I will definitely take the advice of an acrylic tank if I ever do get one - nothing like coming home to find a foot long killer mantis shrimp on the loose! LOL

    A big mantis can take down a humming bird or anole, the mouse I haven't seen before.

    And here my violins are afraid of 1" crickets!


    here's a KATYDID (yes a grasshopper type insect), eating an anole:

    Wow that was absolutely fascinating watching the video done by the Biologist who researched those.

    Thanks for that.
