View Full Version : Help from Stomatopod owners

04/12/2016, 06:13 AM

I am a biology student and I am currently doing a project about mantis shrimp raptorial appendages. I am looking for a (or a few) shed exoskeleton(s) (only the raptorial appendage/claw needed) to scan so that I can digitally manipulate it and look at the structure of the claw.

Do any mantis shrimp owners have any spare shed exoskeletons that they could spare me? Smashers are preferable, but spearers would also be useful.

Of course I will cover the cost of postage.

Many thanks,

I once had a set of smashers from my old G. Chiragra but those are long gone now. My Peacock won't be molting again for another couple of months probably so I'm sorry that I can't help. Best of luck!
