Videos/pictures of Caribbean stomatopods

I'm at a marine biology camp in the Florida keys and I'll be diving and snorkeling a lot. There are quite a few mantises here and I have already a Squilla empusa I think and I know a few Neogonodactylus oerstedii while here. I'll try to take my GoPro on all the dive and snorkel trips to get videos of the different mantises I see.

I'm going on my first dive this afternoon but it is only a checkout dive so no mantises probably. I'm also taking a marine aquaria class just to get some videos of a N. oerstedii

So I just left camp and will try to post the videos this weekend, I saw 50+ N. oerstedii in 1 day while sifting through macro algae.
