Incredible jumping fish get better with age Today’s Video of the Day comes from the University of Exeter and features a look at tiny jumping fish known as mangrove rivulus.
These fish actually get better at jumping as they get older and are able to leap wider distances with more experience.
The maneuver is sometimes referred to as “tail-flip jumping” and it allows mangrove rivulus to swiftly escape from predators to find safer habitats.
