12 Wild and Crazy Animal Kingdom Facts

3. Snapping Shrimp


This aquatic critter has an ability that could be characterized as a bona fide superpower! Their specially-equipped claws are able to direct jets of water that reach speeds in excess of 60 miles per hour! Oftentimes this is all they have to do to stun or totally incapacitate their prey before having them for dinner. By the way, this fancy water-jet shooting results in bubbles that create sounds as loud as 218 decibels, which puts the tiny shrimp in the same league as beluga whales and sperm whales.
