Well think about it, if something 100x your size tried to capture you, I think you'd be more scared than ready to fight. It's probably more scared than it is anything else

Definitely so, be sure to give him some small piece of rock. They like to build their own homes

Depends on the mantis, a peacock or a zebra would be too big.

Mantis Shrimp have the fastest or second fastest movement of all living creatures. When they release their strike, it is so fast that the friction of their club moving through the water is enough to boil the water on the leading edge of their strike.

If you look at it in super slow motion you can actually see the water boil.

Truely an amazing creature. There are two main species, clubbers and spearers, but in those two catagories there are hundreds of different species of Mantis Shrimp, some of them incredibly colourful.

for you guys making the .22 comments. The clubing is comparable to the force of a .22 this doesnt mean the club is the same weight or speed. Its a combination of the two. lightweigth at a high speed combination of a .22 is comparable to heavier/slower mantis punch. you guys are thinking about it the wrong way only comparing one component of "force"
