Small But Wonderful Mantis Shrimp Movie Clip

A few days ago, my mantis shrimp decided he couldn’t wait for his food to drop down into the bottom of the tank, so he rushed out and grabbed it in mid “air”, and then did a swirling flip and ducked back into his cave. I took a chance that he would do it again, and this is the result. He had just molted, so maybe he was especially hungry. Divers and gymnasts will be envious…
