Mantis Shrimp

[M][Digital focus stacking] - Mantis shrimps belong to the Stomatopods, a group of the crustaceans. Stomatopods have larval stages as the one shown here, the so called alima larva, which moult by moult come closer and closer to the adult appearance. As long as they live in the plankton they remain transparent. [size of single organism: 1,5 cm] | Fangschreckenkrebs Larve im pelagischen Larvenstadium
