Fisherman Catches the Most Terrifying Giant Shrimp Ever

We never thought that a picture of a shrimp would be nightmare fuel. But then again, we never knew shrimp got this big.


This strange creature is called a mantis shrimp. This picture comes courtesy of fisherman Steve Bargeron, who caught this off the shore of Florida. He sent photos of his bizarre catch to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, who in turn posted the photos on their Facebook page.

Mantis shrimps are not only terrifying to look at, but monstrous in real life too. Gawker unearthed a video of one of them absolutely pummeling a tiny crab and fish, presumably for the sheer fun of it.

Watch it below, and have fun trying to sleep tonight.
