Peacock Mantis Shrimp Update

Quick video of our Peacock Mantis Shrimp (Odontodactylus scyllarus) feeding. I’m really happy that he’s coming out more and wandering around the refugium.  Hopefully he will start eating the baby peppermint shrimp.

  1. The way it slithers around makes me think of aliens. Specifically the kind that slither on the ground then leap on your face and suck your brains out. That’s a creepy looking critter yet at the same time it’s quite neat. 🙂

  2. Lol… yep, I agree with you!

  3. Such a fantastic specimen, great size and great colour. A real character. You’re the first person I’ve met with a mantis that doesn’t think it’s a pest/PITA. Nice work!

  4. Thanks, yeah he’s a need addition to the system.
