Eons ago, many millennia before written history, bizarre animals roamed the Earth.
The research could help us better understand and protect these gentle giants.
Not only do fish have feelings, but this ability might have evolved hundreds of millions of years ago.
The implications could be important for fish stock estimates.
Some Trinidadian guppies are far braver than others.
Lots of mouths to feed.
Specifically, they put their shoulders into it.
If you boil it, don’t drink the fish stock.
A fish has no face.
Tiny fish, big fangs, huge possibilities.

The amazing sheepshead fish has human-like fish, incisors and molars included.
There are scores of marine species that have evolved light emitting abilities — as many as four in five ocean fish are bioluminescent
The voracious reputation of sharks might soon change as marine biologists uncover that most coral reef sharks eat pray smaller than a cheeseburger.
The global fish stocks are depleting at alarming rates, much faster than reported by the UN, a study found.
You’d think there’s not much a little fish can do to hide from predators in open waters. But when rocks, algae and other marine nooks and crannies are nowhere to be found, fish turn to manipulate the physical interactions of light to balance the scale. For instance, some open ocean fish species employ specialized skin cells that reflect polarized light. This reflection is most effective, not coincidentally, at the ‘chase angle’ or from the predator’s point of view. It’s so effective that the US Navy is funding work that might shed light how exactly some fish do this and how this can be applied to make submersibles equally inconspicuous.
