Mantis Shrimp Punches Crab’s Arm Off

The Peacock Mantis Shrimp is a puny pugilist with a ferocious attitude. They are more than a little territorial, they know exactly who’s moving through their patch...Unaware of the mantis shrimp’s presence, the crab strays close. Too close. With the velocity of a .22 caliber bullet, the mantis shrimp’s strike is the fastest in the animal kingdom The assault is so fast that friction makes the surrounding water boil... The devastating punch knocks the limbs of the victim and delivers a quick death...

      First i thought "yeah sure. i don't think Bruce Lee's punch will boil water though he was incredibly fast"....then i was interested how fast he was....turns out a mantis shrimp punches around 110 km/h - Bruce Lee had a punch at around 190 km/h o_O wtf

      Maybe it weakened the joint in the arm and then when the crab crawled away it caused it to fall off.
