Peacock mantis shrimp having a search around for some food in the shallows of today’s dive - be careful not to get too close to them with the camera as their punch is so powerful, it could smash the lens!
The Peacock Mantis Shrimp punches with force equal to a .22 bullet. They are also known to break aquarium glass with their powerful strikes. #peacockmantisshrimp#tattoo Art by: @nerd.bynature Tatto by: @sideshowjane
Did you know that the deeper we go underwater, the less colours we can see? It’s true! Red is the first to go. That’s why we have red filters on cameras, and awesome #uwphotographer like @kyle_nelson_devine to show us the true colours! ⚓️ ⚓️ ⚓️ ⚓️ ⚓️ #giliair
Not exactly carnivorous plant, however please enjoy an emerald crab riding a turbo snail, a big maxima clam, a giant peacock mantis shrimp, a rather large anemone with an overprotective clownfish, and some random coral and invertebrates. #capitalcarnivores#saltwateraquarium
. Peacock mantis shrimp The punch reaches 80 km (50 miles) per an hour and is said to be approximately 2 times of the punch of the prize fighter . モンハナシャコ そのパンチ力は時速80kmに達し、プロボクサーのパンチの約2倍と言われています。 . #peacockmantisshrimp#underwaterphotography
Tea towels are HALF PRICE! Getting very low on Octopus and Crab designs at the moment... 🐙 This is the glorious Peacock Mantis Shrimp. I combined a super practical black background with the resplendent colours of this marvellous creature. The best of both worlds. 🦑 (I'm looking at you former goth and emo kids) This is one of my favourites. It was so much fun to paint all those shades. I think I may even have completed this illustration in one go without lots of drafts, which is almost unheard of. 🦐 The tea ...
How badass is this guy?! His eyes are insane!! **With 16 color-receptive cones (compared to humans, who have just three), the peacock mantis shrimp can detect ten times more color than a human, including ultraviolet light. It can move each eye independently and uses this exceptional eyesight to avoid predators and track down prey.** #peacockmantisshrimp#mantisshrimp
Showing me its booty • Odontodactylus scyllarus or peacock mantis shrimp • O. scyllarus is a smasher, with club-shaped raptorial appendages. An active hunter, it prefers gastropods, crustaceans, and bivalves, and will repeatedly smash its prey until it can gain access to the soft tissue for consumption. It is reported to have a "punch" of over 50 miles per hour (80 km/h). This is the fastest recorded punch of any living animal. The acceleration is similar to that in a .22 caliber handgun, with 340 pounds-force (1,500 N) per strike. Wikipedia #peacockmantisshrimp#mantisshrimp

I have been using these zipped cosmetic bags as pencil cases for a while now. They are really useful to organise my pens and inks. Great to see @_soha_ayoub has the same idea! Made from 100% cotton with a waterproof lining and featuring my original illustrations including this fascinating peacock mantis shrimp. #pencilcase#designerpencilcase
The peacock mantis shrimp shares its name with two terrestrial creatures and for good reason. Like the peacock, the mantis shrimp is outfitted in incredible colors. Iridescent blues, rich reds and lush greens turn its shell into a veritable underwater rainbow. Two powerful appendages tucked away under that colorful façade resemble the arms of a praying mantis. With those raptorial appendages, the mantis shrimp pulverizes tough-shelled prey, such as crabs and mollusks, as well as gastropods, small fish and other shrimp. Some have even been observed attacking octopuses—formidable opponents considering their size. Its hammer-like arms fire with the speed of ...
Super cool #mantisshrimp we got in this week! This species has raptorial “spearing” forelimbs to ensnare prey much like mantid insects. The popular #peacockmantisshrimp, on the other hand, has club shape appendages that it uses to deliver a powerful punch to its prey.
The Peacock Mantis Shrimp is probably my favorite non-nudibranch photographic subject in Indonesia. They kill their prey by punching them with their club-like appendages. Fun fact: they punch so fast (faster than a .22 caliber bullet) that the water surrounding them boils as it reaches the temp of the sun’s surface!!
Happy birthday to my beautiful @merbellastudios boy, Mantis! This tail changed my life and I will forever be grateful to Raven and those who made him possible! I'm missing him a lot and can't wait to be back in the water in this rainbow masterpiece! Five years strong! 💪🏻 #merbella#merbellastudios
A Peacock Mantis Shrimp scurries across the ocean floor in the waters of Amed, Indonesia. These vibrantly coloured and amazing crustaceans spend most of their time in special burrows amomgst hard coral and rocky seafloors. Some Mantis Shrimp hide and wait for prey to get a little bit to close before striking, Peacock Mantis however prefer to hunt slower moving prey like gastropods and shellfish. Using two extremely powerful fists it smashes away until its preys shell or amour breaks and reveales a fleshy inside. The fists of a Peacock Mantis move so fast they have been known ...
Peacock Mantis Shrimps known among fisherman as "thumb splitters" because of the wallop their hammer-like claws pack. A mantis punch arrives with the acceleration of a .22-caliber bullet, 50 times faster than a human eye can blink. . . #wanderlust#scubagram
