3:35 Critter of the Week: The Mantis Shrimp

This week’s critter is the Mantis Shrimp. Mantis shrimp are undoubtedly one of the coolest and scariest creatures alive. Heterosquilla tricarinata is a native species of mantis shrimp no bigger than your index finger—which, incidentally, it could shred if you touched it. It’s no surprise that these little critters are sometimes called ‘thumb splitters’.
