  1. I love The Oatmeal. According to wikipedia, it is edible... for stuff like sushi or eaten like regular shrimp http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mantis_s...

    1. I have seen them caught on fishing trips. They get snagged on a hook, accidentally.

      Someone always thinks they are faster or doesn't believe it will hurt gets hit.

      1. What a complicated creature of the deep! Although the wiki article says their flesh is more like lobster than shrimp I'm not so sure I'd eat one...

        1. They're quite a delicacy. More about them in these Hong Kong posts,
