  1. Dr. Sheila Patek of UC Berkeley was a Barthalomew awardee at SICB 2008, where she spoke about “shrimp hammers and lobster harmonics”. She described the force of the shrimp hammer as an example of “cavitation”.

    Very interesting phenomenon. Check it out. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cavitation

  2. Where was this footage shot? A wreck of some sort, but was it something set up in an aquarium?
