TRS_Blog_DTOP_BelowTitle_336x280

Mantis shrimp look like a lobster and is neither mantis nor shrimp. This unique creature uses its powerful forearms to deliver punches so powerful, they travel as fast as 22-caliber bullet.

Using hinged arms, the mantis shrimp stores and locks in energy, waiting for the perfect moment to release their deadly attack on their prey. Paired with incredible eyesight that features 12 different color receptors (3 times more than a human!), the mantis shrimp can accurately pinpoint prey with ease.

Watch the video to see their amazing feats!
