10. Pistol Shrimp

The Pistol Shrimp is a family of small shrimps characterized by having asymmetrical claws, the larger of which is typically capable of producing an extremely fast and loud snap. This tiny marine animal’s claws can be cocked like a gun and fire a cavitation bubble nearly as hot as the surface of the sun, while emitting a sound louder than a gunshot (218 decibels).
