Have you ever heard of the mantis shrimp? For those of you who haven't, this animal is one of the most dangerous creatures of the deep. In fact, its claws are among the most powerful in the animal kingdom. When the mantis shrimp hunts, it uses those claws to smash its prey to death.

See what I mean? Those blows are powerful.

If an animal doesn't have a shell, it doesn't stand a chance against the mantis shrimp.

Even glass aquariums have trouble holding these things back.

Honestly, if you're going to be that stupid around such a dangerous animal, maybe you deserve what you get.
