Science Saturday - Deadly Shrimp

Arra, Lakewood Library

Who knew one of the most deadly animals in the world would be a shrimp?  With amazing vision that can see in both the ultraviolet and infrared spectrum not much gets past this feisty little creature.  The two appendages on the front of its body can hit with the same force as a 22 caliber bullet!  Check out the blog The Oatmeal for a fantastic introduction to the mantis shrimp.
