Mantis shrimp or stomatopods are aggressive and typically solitary sea creatures spending most of their time hiding in rock formations or burrowing in intricate passageways in the sea-bed. They either wait for prey to chance upon them or, unlike most crustaceans, actually hunt, chase and kill living prey. They rarely exit their homes except to feed and relocate.
