The mantis shrimp whacks things with a force of around 60 kilograms, or 120 lbs, with each "punch". Given the shrimps low mass, why doesn't the shrimp shoot backwards or something? If it's putting out 120 lbs of force in one direction, shouldn't there be Newtonian principles at work?
Yes, I'm stupid, don't insult me to much please :3
