Caption: Mantis shrimp (Lysiosquilla sp.) in a discarded beer bottle. Mantis shrimps possess an enormously expanded second pair of legs (not seen), which they use for catching prey. The shrimps live in sand burrows or other crevices, shooting out their powerful limbs to grasp or spear passing shellfish and fish. Photographed off Mabul, Malaysia.
