Take a good look.👀 You are staring into the most complex eyes in the animal kingdom and the most complex visual system ever discovered.🦐 The eyes of a mantis shrimp are mounted on mobile stalks and can move independently of each other. Each eye has between 12-16 types of photoreceptor cells ⁠— humans have just 3. Referred to as 'spectral tuning' the shrimp is able to tune the sensitivity of their long-wavelength color vision to adapt to their environment; allowing it to perceive wavelengths of light ranging from deep ultraviolet (UVB) to far-red (300 to 720 nm) and polarized light. In addition to their legendary eyes, a mantis shrimp can punch with a speed equal to a bullet. This enables them to break open mollusks and dismember other crustaceans. You don't need a watch dog, you need a Mantis Shrimp. #WildlifeWednesday 🌎 . . . . . #Science #ocean #shrimp #oceanlife #facts #learning #didyouknow #themoreyouknow #wow #videooftheday #atlantic #sealife #environment #nature #biology #exploration #satisfyingvideos
