Video: Mantis Shrimp Rapidly Grab Prey
This BBC video shows a diver teases out mantis shrimps with bait for a documentary called "Deadly 60." The shrimp can grow up to 12 inches but appear smaller because their bodies are almost completely covered in sand. The creatures are very aggressive and grab the bait with their powerful claws. The species are found commonly in tropical and subtropical waters living within rock formations or passageways under the sea bed.
