The archer fish, or archerfish, is native to India, the Philippines, Australia and Polynesia. The archer fish has a unique way of preying on insects. The archer fish uses its mouth and jaw to squirt water at an insect, knocking the insect off a branch and thus falling in the water to be eaten. It can accurately shoot a stream of water up to 6 feet above the water's surface. It can also adjust for the refraction of light at the water's surface.
