The creepy but interesting, Archerfish

I had to go back and find the video again, after coming across this billboard image in Osaka! Actually, I'd 'never heard of an "Archerfish until now; and at the end of the clip, you'll see why I'm posting it.
Enlarge: Bing search: Here.

From the family of Toxotidae, the Archer fish is known for its habit of preying on land based insects, and other small animals, by literally shooting them down with water droplets from their specialized mouths...

Creepy, but (again) good move at the end of the clip...Haha.

The species is found in mangrove and estuarine habitats throughout much of the Indo-Pacific; and only rarely encountered in freshwater...
Interesting that this species has also been known to hoist its torso up out of the water; as if to fly...

In the case of extinction, or new prey, or water loss, or water increase... Just one of the many examples of adaptation, by which species "morph" to accommodate earth changes; in order to secure their survival...

-Species = adaptation x creation = survival.
-Earth= destruction = renewal... (As always has been.)
