7. Cardinal Fish can spit “fire”
Cardinal Fish eat mainly zooplankton, but when they eat Ostracods (a type of zooplankton), the tiny creatures begin to flash their bioluminescence, making the cardinal fish more visible. Cardinal Fish are little fish, so being seen is not a good idea for them – so they spit out the Ostracods in what looks a burst of bluish fire.
