“It has been suggested that their simple brains may limit their intelligence. However, there is increasing research showing that fish are capable of doing a lot more than previously thought.”
Archer fish can tell one human face from another despite lacking a brain section that homo sapiens and other “smart” animals use for this task, scientists said.
Instead of aiming at bugs, the sharpshooting fish were taught to spit at pictures of human faces displayed on a computer monitor suspended over their aquarium.
