I want to be a mantis shrimp for Halloween this year.

They are called mantis shrimp, or stomatopods. Their front legs
superficially resemble the raptoral front legs of a praying mantis.
They have an immensely powerful strike. They either spear their prey
or smash it with the calcified, club-like appendages. A large mantis
shrimp has enough power in its strike to smash double layered safety
