Nature is insane

There is such a thing as pistol shrimp. They have claws they can snap with enough force to compress bubbles with the temperature comparable to the surface of the Sun (4,730 °C) and produce shockwaves powerful enough to kill small animals at a distance. It uses this pulse effect to stun its prey. It might be the loudest living animal.
