Large Mantis Shrimp Watching the Photographer

Not only does the mantis shrimp have the fastest strike of any animal, it has some of the most amazing eyes in the animal kingdom. They operate independently, perceive a wide spectrum of light from IR to UV, and have far more color receptors than do humans. They are also wonderfully alert to our actions.
