How do shrimp communicate?



  1. 0 Votes

    Biologists have determined that mantis shrimp communicate with each other, or at least with shrimp of the opposite sex, by spinning light waves. Though it is unclear exactly how the mantis shrimp does the spinning, unless they are moving their fins, the shrimp does have a unique ability to distinguish something called “circular polarization”. Unlike in linear polarization, the light will appear to corkscrew to the left or right. It is also not entirely evident what is being communicated, though “i’m interested” is probably the main idea.
