Here's a video on mantis shrimp eyes, how they see and how they are being used to advance technology.

"The eyes of the peacock mantis shrimp are similar and easier to obtain for study." I own firearms. Just saying....

So you're saying you're not willing to donate Pookie's eyes for research? lol!

The Odontodactylus cultrifer is one of the ones that actually use parts of it's body to signal with polarized light. I think they are really hard to come by because Roy Caldwell has posted on his site that he want's to be contacted if anyone finds one. He was posting on RC looking for someone that had bought one and he was trying to hunt them down.

Apparently if you had one you could see the signaling with polarized sunglasses.
