There’s a type of fish that scientists say can recognize human faces — creepy but cool. It’s called an archerfish, and it’s known for spitting at its food. Sounds a little rude, but it makes them pretty unique. They shoot water at their insect prey above the surface causing them to fall into the water.
Their expert spitting skills made them ideal for a study published in the journal Scientific Reports. Researchers used food as a reward to train the fish to spray at the face they wanted. The fish turned out to be pretty accurate, even when the target face was next to other faces.
