Need identification of this critter for presentation to camera club

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm giving a presentation on Underwater photography tomorrow evening to a local camera club, If possible, I'd like to know the ID of this critter. The image was taken in 2008 in Indonesia. I think it was taken at Wakatobi Dive Resort but it could have been taken in Bali as I also went there in 2008.

 

Thanks in advance for any ID help you can provide.

 

Ellen

Thanks so much Allison, elbuzo and Nick! This will enable me to properly describe this critter to the camera club.

 

Allison-

Thanks for the link to the video. It was positively incredible watching that mantis shrimp spear (or club) its prey. I hope you don't mind if I give the link to the folks in the camera club. Kudos to those photographers who made a video of the action!

 

Good to be able to describe the mantis shrimp in my image as the spearing kind.

 

Elbuzo-

 

Thanks for wishing me good luck with my presentation!

Sadly they are high on the restaurant list as they are TASTY. Many areas are being depleted.
