The Rings Story
The Stomatopod (mantis shrimp) pendant crafted for this ring make are the perfect unique gift, a Telson (shield) that belong to the most powerful Stomatopod (mantis shrimp) in existence. The Stomatopod (mantis shrimp) utilize these shields to defend themselves from other predators but mostly…each other. Stomatopods (mantis shrimp) are extremely territorial organisms and when two meet the confrontation is often one of violence. During such altercations, the two combatants will spar with one another and their primary form of defense is their Telson (shield) which they use to great effect at parrying blows from their opponent. Since this is the only part of the animal that is considered a form of defense, it can take considerable punishment over time. However due to the powers of the crustacean all the animal need do is molt and then it will have a brand new Telson (shield) with which to defend itself from other would be opponents.
The Giant Peacock Smasher Video
View my video by Clicking Here. It shows the Giant Peacock Smasher in attack mode. You will notice in the video that after every strike the Giant Peacock Smasher will perform a sort of pull back jerk and bring its tail or Telson (shield) forward in front as a precaution this is typically in the early phase of combat. Once the Giant Peacock Smasher recognizes the fight is won and the opponent cannot challenge it then the Stomatopod (mantis shrimp) will drop its defense and go full offense in order to quickly finish the opponent. This ring Telson (shield) would make an amazing gift for anyone that not only enjoys Stomatopod (mantis shrimp) and sterling silver but also an individual with a bit of fire to them just like the Stomatopod (mantis shrimp) species that this Telson (shield) is crafted from.
Mantis vs Mantis
When two Stomatopods (mantis shrimp) meet this is when their Telson (shield) is most noticeably used. They will approach one another almost in like a ‘cowboy’ stance with their Telson (shield) in front of them and their Dactyls (weapons) to the side. As they creep toward one another slowly in this crescent moon shape one will inevitably and swiftly dart forward and strike its opponents Telson (shield), this is known as sparring and very common in Stomatopod (mantis shrimp) society. However sparring quickly turns lethal should an opponent reveal their delicate underside and its opponent capitalize, their is no referee in the Stomatopods (mantis shrimp) fight club.
