Mantus shrimp are very common from rhode island to cape cod. My friend has a oyster farm at Pt Judith and has traps for the shrimp. They can smash a clam or oyster. Search youtube for some videos. Pretty amazing. They're aggressive buggers!

And if you are snorkeling and come across a Mantis....keep your fingers off or he will keep them. They can do some serious damage.

Re: ticking sound in great salt pond

I too have been fooled by them. To me, was like a crackling sound. I freaked, thinking it sounded like an electrical short somewhere in my boat.

Another sound that didn't belong , turned out to be mating Drum (fish). I couldn't figure out what was "groaning" on the boat.

Black drums become very noisy during the mating season. The low pitched sounds that they produce travel long distances. The males produce the sounds to attract females.

In 2005, residents in Cape Coral on the Florida Gulf Coast complained that they were being kept awake at night by low-pitched throbbing sounds in their homes, which they believed were being created by an engineering fault in the buildings. It was eventually discovered that the sounds were being created by black drum fish, which at first the residents found hard to believe. The fish had swum into the canals and estuaries in the area. Their mating calls were penetrating the ground and the seawalls and entering nearby houses. Fish That Make Sounds - Purrs, Grunts, Hums and Hoots
