The Banded Archerfish is a species of fish from the rivers and lakes of India, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Australia. It has the ability to create a tube with its tongue and the roof of its mouth. Pressurized water is then shot through this tube, allowing it to shoot water at insects up above. The water jets are strong enough to knock the insects into the water, where the archerfish can grab them. The archerfish is one of the most intelligent fish, as it can accurately plan where the insect will land so that it will be the first to grab it, and it can account for refraction between the water and the air in its shots.
