The mantis shrimp is an amazing animal. I highly recommend you buy some mantis shrimp yarn and then google the animal while you wait for your yarn to arrive. Two facts about the shrimp to intrigue you - they are very strong and can punch their prey with the force of a .22 caliber bullet. They also have 16 types of color receptive cones (we have 3, red, blue, and green) which allows them to see colors we haven't even dreamed of. Think about the yarn colors I could create if I had 16 types of color receptors! Anyway, buy this yarn and google mantis shrimp. You won't be sorry.
This batch of Mantis Shrimp turned out a bit darker than intended so while it is still beautiful I didn't want anyone to be disappointed if they ordered the normal Mantis Shrimp and got something more muted than they anticipated so I am listing it separately.
