Harlequin Mantis Shrimp~ The mantis shrimp has one of the most elaborate visual systems ever discovered. It moves so quickly that the water around it boils (this is called supercavitation). They also pack a serious punch that sends out shock waves through the water. These shock waves have been known to shatter aquarium glass. by rinjani

Peacock Mantis Shrimp. Looks sure are deceiving here because this guy is what's known as a smasher, with club shaped raptorial appendages that it uses to repeatedly smash its prey until it can gain access to the soft tissue for consumption. It is reported to have a "punch" of over 50mph. The fastest punch of any living animal.
