This Fish Preys On Land-Based Insects By SHOOTING Them With Jets Of Water
November 18, 2014
The Archerfish is truly an unbelievable animal. It shoots an "aquatic spear" from beneath the water to hit bugs up to two feet away that may be resting on a branch above the surface of the water - a remarkable feat that reminds us how magnificent our world truly is.
When squirting water, archerfish continually change the shapes of their mouths so that the water stream will successfully aim and fire at prey. By doing this, the fish essentially alter the properties of moving water.
Because the fish deliberately influence the hydrodynamics of the water, this qualifies as tool use. And if fish are capable of tool use, it's time to change how we view fish intelligence.
