Snapping Shrimp Stun Prey with Flashy Bang

Among the fascinating creatures of the deep is a finger-size shrimp with an oversize claw–resembling a boxing glove–that it uses to stun its prey by snapping the claw shut. The snapping produces a sharp cracking sound.

When colonies of the shrimp snap their claws, the cacophony is so intense that submarines can take advantage of it to hide from sonar.
