The power of of their modified forelimbs is quoted as powerful as a "20 calibre bullet" if i remeber it right.

Encik Mocha:

Did a little striptease first. And then she obliged. :o

That shot of the mantis shrimp was a lucky shot. Peacock mantis shrimps are 'smashers', meaning in defence, they will charge at intruders and use their modified forelimbs like hammers smash whatever is in their way. They also use this to hunt for crustaceans by shattering their hard outer shells. They are usually not affraid to charge. Taking advantage of this, tried approaching the bugger with caution and kept my distance to avoid having my housing shattered. Was kinda like a standoff. When I got close enough, I I quickly pressed the shutter. All my other shots of that particular mantis shrimp are side profile shots.


interesting.

camera domes aside, will its "20mm calibre equivalent charge" have the same effect of, say, a trigger attacking divers during nesting season?

Well we dont know that for exact mr deepblu.  Its written in the book la, tak tau betul ke tak. Kalau tak percaya next time you see mantis shrimp you car try provoke it with yur camera.  Then ill take your video.  If your port really breaks than i can post in you tube, or we can send it to Ripleys Believe it or Not?hehe
