A peacock mantis shrimp (Crustacea: Stomatopoda: Odontodactylidae: Odontodactylus scyllarus) uses its raptorial appendage to strike snail shell. Because of the extreme speed of the strike, a sheet of cavitation forms over the surface of the snail. This video was filmed at 20,000 frames per second and played here at ~15 frames per second.
