Sorry, Oatmeal. Your precious mantis shrimp – with its ultraviolet visual abilities and admittedly powerful raptorial appendages – is no match for the deadly cunning of a hungry octopus.
In this epic battle, we witness who would win if a mantis shrimp was pitted against a veined octopus. It's a face to face, eye to eye crusade of the octopus versus the mantis shrimp!
Epic? Please. This is basically a mantis shrimp snuff film. What good is ultraviolet vision if you can't spot a hungry cephalopod, amirite?
Go team octopus.
