    Archer fish makes use of physics instead of its muscles

    Archer fish spitting mystery solved, scientists say

    By Michelle Warwicker
    BBC Nature


    Italian scientists say they have solved the mystery of how archer fish can spit powerful jets of water.
    Archer fish shoot water jets with enough force to knock prey into the water from overhanging vegetation.
    Research by a team from the University of Milan shows that the fish's forceful strike is formed externally using water dynamics, rather than using the body's internal muscles.
    This technique allows the animals to take accurate shots from up to 2m away.
    For years scientists studied archer fish (Toxotes jaculatrix), searching for evidence of specialised internal organs that are adapted to this water-pistol-like hunting technique.
    But previous studies have ruled out this idea.

    The new research, published in the PLoS ONEjournal, demonstrated that archer fish "modulate" the velocity of the water jet as they spit to alter its shape through the air.
    The head of the water jet increases in volume from liquid arriving from its tail to form a large drop, which hits insect prey with greater force.
    Professor Alberto Vailati, a member of the research team said they needed to watch high-speed video recordings to make their discovery.

    The jets of water are produced when archer fish press their tongues against a groove in their mouths to form a gun-barrel-like shape, and close their gills to force out a spurt of water.
    Archer fish shoot water jets up to six times more powerful than their muscular strength
    The water spurts are up to six times stronger than the fish's muscular power - strong enough to abruptly knock even firmly anchored prey into the water so that the archer fish can devour them.
    Other animals, such as chameleons, use a "catapult" technique by storing energy in collagen fibres within their bodies.
    These internal structures "act as a kind of spring", allowing chameleons to suddenly shoot their tongues out to capture prey, said Prof Vailati.
    The findings by Prof Vailati and his colleagues are the first to suggest that it is external powers of physics rather than biological causes that afford archer fish with their deadly darts.

    So, any evolutionist to explain us what is happening ?

    I'dont think so... because when the facts are against the funny theory of evolution ,the evolutionists prefer to change the subject....
