It’s High Noon for the mantis shrimp, who defends its home to the last

A mantis shrimp (Odontodactylus scyllarus) builds its nest and vehemently defends it against intruders. Jose Lachat’s short documentary is a film about strength, stoicism and honour, a sort of undersea High Noon replete with a suitably Ennio Morricone-esque soundtrack.

Director: Jose Lachat
