Habitat: Indo-Pacific Oceans, from Guam to East Africa
Anyways, back to the 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.
Moral of the story: Tyra Banks and the Peacock Mantis Shrimp should hang out.
