Mantis shrimp punch - The mantis shrimp packs the most powerful punch in the animal kingdom

What if a human could punch like a mantis shrimp? Instead, they got their common name due to their resemblance to both praying mantis and shrimp.

They can also prey on animals much larger than themselves, due to their significant power.

How strong is a human punch? Mantis shrimps get their name from their appearance.

How the Mantis Shrimp Packs a Powerful Punch

Researchers from the University of Queensland believe that the compound eyes of mantis shrimp can detect cancer lesions and the activity of neurons, because they have the ability to detect polarised light that reflects differently from cancerous and healthy tissue — before they appear as visible tumours.

Description: However, if you have a really large tank with plenty of space, you may keep many together.

RELATED: Mantis shrimp, or stomatopods, are an ancient group of marine predators that are only distantly related to other crustaceans, such as crabs, shrimp and lobsters.
They typically eat fish, crabs, clams, snails, worms, shrimp and squid.
While they are relatively common, they are not particularly well understood species as they are solitary and territorial sea creatures, spending most of their time hiding in rocks and burrowing in the sea bed.

    The mantis shrimp packs the most powerful punch in the animal kingdom. Crabs, clams and other hard-bodied sea-life – be very afraid. Your shells can't save you now. Despite its common name, the mantis shrimp is not actually a shrimp but a stomatopod, distantly related to lobsters and crabs. (And, admittedly, shrimps.)

    The fists of a mantis shrimp are actually a pair of club-like front legs, called dactyls. When a peacock shrimp is threatened, its dactyls can strike with a speed of roughly 75 feet per second, which is 50 times faster than you can blink your eyes and about as fast as a .22 caliber bullet.

    Mantis Shrimp are Nature’s Heavy Hitters. This isn’t the first shrimp McCracken has caught, but it’s the first to fight back. The colorful crustacean begins to writhe as he removes the hook, then seizes a foot and punches through his brand-new bootie and the flesh underneath. “That’s proof right there of the power…of the freaking mantis shrimp,” McCracken groans as he surveys the damage to his foot.

    The researchers mimicked this process in a 1.5-gram, shrimp-scale robot. While the robot didn’t reach the speed of a mantis shrimp strike, its speed clocked in at 26 meters per second in air — with an acceleration equivalent to a car reaching 58 mph in four milliseconds. The device is faster than any similar devices at the same scale to date.
