Mantis Shrimp, for the most awesome and badass creature in the sea. Destroys calamares and all those other wimpy sea creatures mentioned previously. Also called the "thumbsplitter shrimp" for some odd reason. Somehow was never made a character in "The Little Mermaid", Sebastian would have kicked butt as a MS.
