Previously I posted about shrimpoluminescence, small bursts of light created by pistol shrimp when they snap their claws shut – the only known case of animals producing sonoluminescence (light created by bubbles when excited by sound). For the full explanation of the fantastic phenomenon read the old post here.

I have no idea why I didn’t come across this before, but a friend just passed me this highly cheesified video, which was just too camp to pass up. If, like me, you love histrionic British narrators that inject as much drama as possible into every sentence, you’ll enjoy this.

And in case you were wondering – no, a pistol shrimp’s claw opening and shutting doesn’t actually sound like a 12-gauge shotgun being loaded and fired.
