i think i have heard about an strange kind of fish that dwells in the depths of the ocean, a very deep and dark place indeed. It creates his own light and use it as a lure to attract its prey, often smaller fishes. i do not actually know its name, but i think its technique is also relevant and peculiar.

This technique is quite amazing, like something i have never seen before or known about, a magnificent deployment of adaptability and dexterity that it is finally rewarded and it seems to be very effective though. i am wondering if it works all the time the dolphins use it, I guess it does. As i watched them feeding themselves with what they might consider a delicious feast of fish, i experienced a familiar feeling of happiness as i burst out laughing and shed tears like a little babe boy crying for his breast-feeding, in a roundabout kind of way. This video displays a beauty of nature. A natural behaviour of one of the smartest creature that has ever inhabited the earth.

I thinck the way Dolphins catch fish in the video is much clever. I’m sorry but I dont know others clever techniques animals use to catch their food
