Default Mantis shrimp

I have finally trapped the mantis shrimp that I was trying to trap for 6 months now. Next is finding it a home. Any one interested?

I used one of those mantis traps. I had one in for a while but he kept going under the lever releas instead of on top of it. I broke it and had to go get another one. When I got the second trap I fished fishing line through the screw hole that the tensioner goes in and tied a shrimp tail to it, screwed in the tensioner to hold the shrimp on top of the release lever. He went in tried pulling it and pow. He was mine.

I saw one in DR while snorkeling i nearly crapped my shorts when it poped out of a hole I was trying to retrieve some urchin skeletons from. Between the mantis and a huge scorpion fish I don't know who made me swim faster.
