"Stomatopods (aka mantis shrimp) are predatory crustaceans that live in the shallow waters of tropical and subtropical seas. This page provides a guide for people who are interested in the shrimp either on a professional level (marine biologists) or as a hobby and offers information on a variety of level, from an introduction to the creatures to papers on their biology. Also offers images, links to researchers in the area and so forth. Plus a quirky guide to stomatopods in film and fiction."
