A Smashing Mantis Shrimp (Adontodactylus scyllarus) scurrying across the rocky bottom on the rocky ocean floor on the shore muck dive site at Basura in Anilao, Mibini in the Batangas area of The Philippines.
This colorful mantis shrimp is a night feeding carnivore and preys on a variety of marine animals including basically anything up to the same size as the animal.
