Spitting Fish

Hubby's surfing around on tv and he just paused at the Science Channel. They're currently highlighting the Archer Fish, which is AMAZING. This little fish has a very interesting hunting method for sustenance. It lines itself up under a bug on a branch hanging over the water and then SPITS at it. It shoots a concentrated beam of water up to 6 feet away with enough pressure to knock the bug off its branch!! LUNCH!

You can see a photo here or a video here.

I love the creativity and variety that God used to fill our planet!

How interesting! God certainly has a sense of humor. Who would think that a fish could catch his lunch which is sitting on a branch 6 ft. above him. Amazing.

Something tells me this fish would have hero status to 12 year old boys....
