collectionpyowb. It's a mantis shrimp. A quick jaunt over to wikipedia tells me that this fella isn't a shrimp. Nor is he a praying mantis. He just looks like a little of both. And he can be a foot long (30cm)! Okay, almost done, just one more: "Although it happens rarely, some larger species of mantis shrimp are capable of breaking through aquarium glass with a single strike from [it's claw]." Yowsa! Thanks Mohamad!
