Pistol Shrimp

This creature is equipped with a powerful weapon which is equivalent to that of a gun but on a smaller scale.

The pistol shrimp snaps a specialized claw shut to create a cavitation wave that generates noise in excess of 200 decibels and is capable of killing small fish. This sea creature blasts bubbles at over 60 mph (97 km/h) with a temperature comparable to that of the sun.
