    Default Mantis Shrimp Pics.

    This beauty out of the stomach of a striper cleaned at our dock yesterday.



    Flipped over belly view.



    Face showing it's stalked eyes.



    It's weapons showing front legs that can give a blow strong enough to break a human finger and also aquarium glass.



    Front leg stetched out showing that they are not only powerful but also beautiful.
