Little section for our Mantis Shrimp[edit]

I don't know how to actually edit well an article, adding that this is not my main lenguage, so i will only suggest and wait for somene to add it. Summarizing, Mantis Shrimp have by far better eyes than humans, 12 types of photoreceptors (humans have only 3), that means they can see much more colours than us (so much colors that their brain can't actually process well similar colors), can see UV light and Polarised Light, can see the field in depth like humans, and each eye can move independently, and that's just the eye, the colours of the shrimp are beautiful, and have pincers that can use as hammers, with great strength for his size, so it can be a good addition to the article since their eyes are very special and by far more complex, link for the little boy in Wikipedia KriticSoul (talk) 19:29, 21 July 2022 (UTC)

Thanks, I have added some text and two images. Bongolian (talk) 19:47, 21 July 2022 (UTC)
Lovely. I'm fascinated with them myself. They taste like lobster and I think they're nicknamed both thumb splitters and water pissers iirc. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 00:13, 22 July 2022 (UTC)
The idea that mantis shrimp have better eyes than humans is a myth, and in reality they can't distinguish between colors as well as humans. Plutocow (talk) 04:09, 22 July 2022 (UTC)
Thanks, I reverted my edit. Feel free to write something more accurate. Bongolian (talk) 04:17, 22 July 2022 (UTC)
Oh, ok, it was known that their brain couldn't differentiate well similar colors, and according to the article, their eyes don't combine photoreceptors, they only see 12 colors instead, or that's what i understand, but anyway, they still have better eyes isn't? Just they don't have super eyes like the ones that were depicted. KriticSoul (talk) 00:29, 23 July 2022 (UTC)
They definitely have complex eyes and have eyes more intricate in ways compared to humans. Maybe they confused that for better color sight. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 01:57, 23 July 2022 (UTC)
