Would have been neat to see a picture of him before you got rid of him.

I've always liked mantis shrimp 8O

Of course, one would probably have to keep them in a stainless steel box to prevent them from breaking anything

I'm not sure which is truth and which is rumore. I'm told by the crew at wet web media that it is more likly that a mantis will destabilize the LR and have the rock go thru the glass, opposed to the mantis striking and breaking it.

a mantis shrimps strike hits with the force of, I think, a .22 calibre bullet.

So I'm sure they can break the glass themselves, as well as making rock fall.
