This little critter just kept darting in and out of the small opening. Playing peek-a-boo with us. Not sure what it is but looks like a juvenile mantis shrimp? Anyone care to confirm? Spotted in Basura, Anilao at a depth of about 5m

I also thought whether it could be a juvenile of the mantis shrimp because the eyes are so similar.. great finding!
