Mantis shrimp or stomatopods are marine crustaceans, the members of the order Stomatopoda. They may reach 30 centimetres (12 in) in length, though in exceptional cases have been recorded at up to 38 cm (15 in). The carapace of mantis shrimp covers only the rear part of the head and the first four segments of the thorax. Mantis shrimp appear in a variety of colours, from shades of brown to bright neon colours. Although they are common animals and among the most important predators in many shallow, tropical and sub-tropical marine habitats, they are poorly understood as many species spend most of their life tucked away in burrows and holes.

One of the most dangerous creatures on the forest floor has many weapons at it's disposal -- a fast-acting venom, speed of striking, but most sinister of all is that animals, even humans can be totally oblivious to it's presence. The Death Adder is a passive hunter which wastes little energy. It lies in wait for its prey, usually under a pile of leaves, with only the tip of its tail exposed. By wriggling the worm-like tip, the Death Adder begins its waiting game.

Slave-making ants are brood parasites that capture brood of other ant species to increase the worker force of their colony. After emerging in the slave-maker nest, slave workers work as if they were in their own colony, while parasite workers only concentrate on replenishing the labor force from neighboring host nests, a process called slave raiding. The slave-making ants are specialized to parasite a single species or a group of related species, and they are often close relatives to their hosts, which is typical for social parasites. The slave-makers may either be permanent social parasites (thus depending on enslaved hosts ants throughout their whole lives) or facultative slave-makers. The behavior is unusual among ants but has evolved several times independently. For More Videos and HD Wildlife Stock Footage: http://www.absolutelywildvisuals.com
