INFO OF THE DAY
Mantis shrimps are called "sea locusts" by ancient Assyrians, "prawn killers" in Australia and now sometimes as "thumb splitters" – because of the animal's ability to inflict painful gashes if handled incautiously. These animals sport powerful claws that are used to attack and kill prey by spearing, stunning, or dismembering. In captivity, some larger species can break through aquarium glass.
