A Fish’s Edge with Visages
Archerfish shoot high-powered water jets from their mouths to stun prey. By training them to direct those jets of spit at certain individuals, scientists have shown that the little guys seem to be able to distinguish one human face from another. Does this mean fish are smarter than we thought? Or are human faces just very easy to differentiate? Anthony and Jeff have some theories, and try to decide what that means for sushi lovers everywhere.
