Ah, yes. The mantis shrimp. Complicated eyes, colourful body and a punch that hits harder than Bruce Lee karate chopping a plank of wood.
Let's focus on the punch. Nature's fastest and most powerful hit can literally leave a gaping hole in a crab. Wouldn't it be nice to do that in Thrive? Wouldn't it be unimaginatively stressful and fun to have that done to you in Thrive? Wouldn't it be a lovely flight to the other side of the belgiuming planet if a large creature did that to you in Thrive?
Is it a good idea? Will we punch holes into other creatures in Thrive? (That is, of course, if gore is enabled.)
Because it sounds like fun. To me, anyway. (Because who needs organic cannons if you have arms which hit harder)
p.s-i have just thought of a creature with mantis shrimp arms punching a spacecraft to space-illustration anyone?

A few thoughts:
1) I suppose the likelihood of implementation ultimately depends on a number of factors, mostly how we end up handling muscle creation/application, and what sort of physics we end up handling. If we go simple and without dismemberment, then there probably wouldn't be a 'puncture punch', but this becomes more likely as an organic conclusion with more complexity. TL:DR I think it'd be cool, and I have no idea if it will or will not be possible. 2) All hail the Mantis Shrimp
