Banded archerfish.  The banded archerfish is known for its ability to shoot down resting insects by spitting a jet of water. Large archerfishes can hit a target 2-3m away. Archerfishes have adaptations to the mouth which enable spitting. When a banded archerfish shoots a jet of water, it raises its tongue against the roof of the mouth forming a tube. The gill covers quickly close forcing water along the tube. This species mostly lives in mangrove and estuarine habitats throughout much of the Indo-Pacific, Toxotes jaculatrix
