i think the coolest thing would be to see a new color

right so theres this thing called the bullet shrimp 

imageand not only are these things totally badass and stylish

they have 16 colour cones in their vision

us humans only have 3

these things can literally see over 5 times as many colours as we can

literally they can look at what we would see as a completely black space and see thousands of colours we don’t even know exist

do you understand how fuCKING COOL THAT IS

not only that but they can punch a hole in an aquarium tank.

that’s pretty fucking radical.

not only punching through aquarium walls too

these little demon-spawn can punch so hard and so fast that

IT BREAKS WATER PHYSICS

their punches cause water to boil and create a bubble underwater, which kills its prey if it has contact with it, cooking them from the outside

BUT IT DOESN’T EVEN NEED TO MAKE CONTACT

the collapsing bubble sends out a shockwave strong enough to kill anything in a 10 cm diameter due to pure pressure 

this fabulous sob is death incarnate and don’t forget that   

Even better - the inside of that little bubble before it collapses is over 400 million degrees Kelvin, hotter than the surface of the Sun.

it’s called a MANTIS SHRIMP YOU PEASANT there isn’t even a bullet shrimp?? there’s a pistol shrimp, but what you got is a picture of a mantis shrimp so get your shit together also the 5x more color thing is sort of true but probably not the “whoa whoa colors we can’t imagine!!1!” bit just no we’re pretty sure they can just see more shades of types of things already in the visible light spectrum, focused around the ends - reds and blues, and in between other colors
