Wildlife on One (1977 - 2005): Fastest Claw in the West
Killer shrimps? Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water along comes one of these deadly creatures with a knockout punch. They are called mantis shrimps (Gonodactylus smithii) and their strike is one of the fastest animal movements known. Its impact is equivalent to a .22 calibre bullet. they use jagged spears or huge clubs with devastating results. They can even punch through glass and often batter their way out of aquaria. After this, a plate of scampi will never taste the same again!
