Red Smasher Mantis Shrimp

Red Smasher Mantis Shrimp - Thailand, 2006

This exotic creature is about 5 1/2 inches long. It has hammer-like appendages powerful enough to crack an aquarium tank glass. Its eyes are very complex - each having 3 separate compartments. Thus it can see three dimensionally with one eye.

For a better look at the eyes of this species see my other image Green Smasher Mantis Shrimp. This species is worth Googling.
