  1. I was watching a nature special on KBS World the other day about the many creatures they have on the western Korean coastline and one of them was a pistol shrimp. I'd heard they can defend themselves this way before, so was excited to see what would happen. But alas, the shrimp was swarmed by some amphibian frog-like creatures and didn't get to truly represent the awesomeness of its species.
