According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife, Steve Bargeron witnessed an angler pull a creature out of the water while fishing from a dock in Fort Pierce!
The creature was about 18 inches long and striking its own tail, so he grabbed it like a lobster. Scientists think it may be some type of mantis shrimp (which are actually not related to shrimp, but are a type of crustacean called a stomatopod), and continue to review the photos to identify the exact species.
