The mantis shrimp's claws snap to produce a bubble that is as hot as the sun. How they manage to do that is the focus of a video on the cavitation caused by the shrimp and how the creature is able to create sonoluminescence. Scientists study how the shrimp snap a bubble that is able to produce both extreme heat and light underwater.
