The Mantis Shrimp is found in underwater in the ocean. Its shadow is small and it moves away from the player.
The Mantis Shrimp can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Mantis shrimp have long, sickle-shaped legs and thick carapaces covering both their bodies and tails. They strike captured prey with claws powerful enough to crack the shells of even the toughest crabs. They are a popular dish with fans of seafood, though females with eggs are worth more than males."
Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:
"I got a mantis shrimp! Pray on someone else, ya shrimp!"
