Can’t have a mantis shrimp forum without this posted here. This is the go to for mantis information and identification.

I just want to put this here, I moved to Hong Kong and my wife’s mum made mantis shrimp for dinner and I had never ever seen or heard of them before (this was years ago). I didn’t care for the taste but basically every seafood restaurant has a tank with tons of these in them. The Chinese name is “lai niu ha” which literally means “peeing shrimp”. I guess because they squirt water when taken out of the tank.
