I was preparing my reply when you guys posted those three re Pistol Shrimp...That may be it. They must be some determined bastards to live in that nasty water...

Ever do any scuba diving? The notion most uninitiated people have that it's very quiet down there - couldn't be further from the truth. The sounds sea creatures make is amazing.

BADG...Thanks for the child rearing advice, but I think you missed my humor. I was kidding. I will include a smiley face or two in the future.

Oh, my bad.
Sorry to sound preachy, I thought that was an unusual way to respond to your kid.
I'll get off my soapbox now.

Why bother.
We all have used the same sort of psychology from one time or another.

I really don't understand the fuss.

No problem...He is 15 years old. I could have the exact right answer to one of his questions and if some total stranger made something up he would buy their explanation instead. It's typical, but he and his 17 year old brother are trying to be independent and tend to think that their parents don't know anything. They'll grow out of it - I'm waiting.

It just occurred to me it could be "Popcorn Shrimp." I have seen those on the menu in restaurants but I never knew why they called them that...(just kidding folks)

Holy Pistol Shrimp Batman! Those critters are crazy.

I've always kinda imagined the ocean as one huge symphony... kinda like sitting on a porch in the country... so "quiet" that it's deafening.

Oh... my vote is the discarded Rice Crispies. Makes a better story.

I've heard that sound in Floridaand Bahamas, the Caribbean, and the West coast too, from Mexico to Southern California. I find that on some boats it seems to resonate in the hull quite loudly, while other dampen it somewhat. The closest thing I have heard to it is the sound that Parrot fish make when the are nibbling on coral. I never new what it was but I'm happy to have hungry shrimp as an awswer.
