Odontodactylus scyllarus - Peacock Mantis Shrimp
Peacock mantis shrimp are very aggressive hunters and are active both during the day and at night.
They are typically solitary outside of mating.
The powerful strikes of peacock mantis shrimp are powered by elastic forces, meaning that the farther back they pull their raptorial appendages, the stronger the strike; speeds of up to 20 m/s have been recorded for a strike.
Each strike actually generates two blows, one from the impact of the limb itself (400-1501 Newtons) and one from the explosion of a cavitation bubble created from the initial impact (up to 504 Newtons).

One of my biggest expeditions to this day was rowing across the Atlantic ocean. 45 days of open ocean. 3000miles crom Canary islands to Barbados.

If I can't be under the water, I sure want to be on top of it! 😀 Sea kayaking around the gorgeous island Rab in Croatia.

Surreal experience swimming through hundreds of thousands of tiny Glass Fish. You can clearly make out their spine and organs as they shimmer and catch the sunlight while darting in and out of the corals. By moving slowly and allowing the currents to sway you they almost seem to accept you as one of them.
Black-and-white beauty 😍⠀
