TED talk: an outreach talk by Sheila Patek in 2004

Sheila Patek: Measuring the fastest animal on earth

This video shows Sheila Patek as a postdoctoral fellow in 2004 talking about the mantis shrimp system.  This talk was delivered in the earliest days of the development of this system - we've discovered many more intriguing things since then and even found a few errors from those early days.  It captures the enthusiasm and excitement of discovery - one of the best parts of the life of a scientist.
