It Is Pink And Makes A Loud Noise,

just like the band it is named after,

a team of scientists from universities in the UK, the US, and Brazil have described a new species of pistol shrimp in the journal Zootaxa, they named it after their favourite band, because it resembles them in a couple of ways, researchers have named a sonically super-powered shrimp after Pink Floyd, because of its bright colour and pistol-quick ability to blast enemies with sound, the newly-discovered species of pistol shrimp, dubbed Synalpheus pinkfloydi, uses a big, bright-pink claw to shoot shock waves at its foes, in its habitat off the Pacific coast of Panama, 

although not Synalpheus pinkfloydi, this video demonstrates the impressive power of pistol shrimps, they are known for their ability to stun prey with a sonic blast by snapping their claws, which also produces a heat wave and weaponized bubbles, so it would seem that some scientists like Pink Floyd!
