Archer Fish at Work

30 Mar 2011 2 4 349
Archer Fishes are famed for their ability to shoot down insects and small creatures resting on foliage or mangrove roots like a bowman or archer. His flattened body presents a narrow profile so they can sneak up on their prey. The bold markings camouflage them in the sun or under low-hanging vegetation. Archer Fishes are like submarine water pistols and can spit out a strong and accurate jet of water. With their tongue against the groove on the roof of their mouth, they form a tube, and force water powerfully out by snapping shut their gills. To get a good jet of water, the snout sticks out. They direct the jet of water with the tip of their tongue. For accurate aim, they have large eyes located very near the mouth, which give good binocular vision.
