Here is a little bugger that shoots hotter than the Sun.

National Geographic is pushing for it to be ruled Rending.....:rolleyes:

Its not really a "bio-weapon" theres no symbiotie to another creature.
I seem to re-call reading about them in grade 10 science class.

If nothing else thanks for the link, now I can show my brother what I was talking about when I saw these guys on some show on The Discovery Channel some time ago.:D

Wow, I find that kinda hard to believe(that they could be so deadly). I used to have 3 of them in my marine aquarium, I never noticed any such 'gunshot' from them(although I did occasionally hear an odd clicking noise, but I never attributed that to them).

Its ********, if it were hotter than the sun, even for a split second (the suns outer is around 6000C or 15,000,000C in the core) there would be visable evidence... Such as the water around it and the creature hit flashing to vapour in an instant.

Actually, it is believable - check out the actual physics of how this works:

Actually no, you wouldn't. The 'mass' of energy generated is minute enough that it is completly dissipated into the surrounding water without visible effect.

Except for the poor smaller fish that gets a nasty shock. :p

Temperature of the sun = It's actually got it's own built in PLASMA GUN? Sweeeet...

That means Grots must be part shrimp! It would explain why they are so effective against terminators!!:D

TheEndIsHere - the have long been rending shrimp, go look up mantis shrimp. You;ll never want to swim in the tropics again(My mate had one spear his hand once, not a pretty sight, and I have heard horror stories of a single mantis shrimp cracking through the glass of a fish tank and dumping gallons of seawater on the floor).
