Wow: Super Sonic Pistol Shrimp

When I go to art class on Thursdays I ask my class buddy about cool stuff he learned. This week he told me about his recent studies in electricity and magnetism. And then he asked me what I learned. My response was you to have check out this video!

And this video is a view onto the world of the Pistol Shrimp. This little sea creature amazing. It uses a proportionately massive claw to produce super sonic bubbles that blast away prey. A must see! Classroom connections....the wow factor will hook your kids and provide a good opening to marine biology, physics, ecosystems, and more.
