This type of pistol shrimp has a symbiotic relationship with the goby pictures in the foreground. The amazing thing about the pistol shrimp is its enlarge claw that makes a snapping noise. According to wikipedia "the snap can also produce sonoluminescence from the collapsing cavitation bubble. As it collapses, the cavitation bubble reaches temperatures of over 5,000 K (4,700 °C). In comparison, the surface temperature of the sun is estimated to be around 5,800 K (5,500 °C)."
