We present an analysis of strong single pulses from PSR J0034−0721. Our observations were made using the Urumqi 25-m radio telescope at a radio frequency of 1.54 GHz. A total of 353 strong pulses were detected during eight hours of observing. The signal-to-noise ratios of the detected pulses range from 5 to 11.5. The peak fluxes of those pulses are 17 to 39 times that of the average pulse peak. The cumulative distribution of the signal-to-noise ratios of these strong pulses has a rough power-law distribution with a slope of 4.4 ± 0.5. Ten of the strong pulses arrived approximately 23 to 40 ms earlier than the average profile peak. This suggests the possibility that there are two strong pulse-emitting regions.
