Mantis Shrimp is an evil little guy, but I think they're pretty cool. :) They spear or smash crabs, snails, and sometimes fish to eat, and have the power to split open a finger. Named for the eye stalks that make it look like a Mantis bug.

Anyways, cool encounter! Who would have thought you would find a Mantis on the beach.
