was used as a model for this behavioural experiment as it is known for knocking down aerial prey with jets of water.
is a remotely-controlled underwater vehicle equipped with an explosive warhead to destroy sea mines.
To create such a powerful blast of water, an archerfish
presses its tongue against a groove in the roof of its mouth.
If a Toxotes archerfish
can't jump high enough to snatch an insect off an overhanging leaf, the fish spits water upward that knocks the prey off its perch.
