Deafeningly loud shrimp has been named after Pink Floyd

A shrimp that produces a sound louder than a rock concert has been named after the band Pink Floyd by a rock fan zoologist.

The pistol shrimp, named Synalpheus pinkfloydi, has a distinctive pink snapping claw that it uses to stun prey with sonic energy.

Zoologist and Pink Floyd fan Dr Sammy de Grave, from Oxford University's Museum of Natural History, had been waiting for the chance to honour the rock legends by giving their name to a new species.
