Pistol Shrimp

Today one of my students introduced me to the Pistol Shrimp.  These guys have a big claw that builds up pressure and then snaps shut so fast that they blast water at a victim fast enough to atomize the water and create a bubble as hot as the surface as the sun that shoots out at 60 mph!  Apparently Mantis Shrimp do something similar.  I wouldn't have believed it if you described it to me, so check out the video below.

This first video has some wonderful dramatized sound effects.

Thanks, Pat, you can bet there will be one of these babies in the show.  Amazing!
