Soares and her colleagues used high-speed cameras to film a group of nine male guppies from the island of Trinidad. Their research, published online April 16 in the journal PLOS ONE, suggests wild guppies use their curious jumping ability as a way to spread the species away from an original habitat, to a new place with fewer predators. In other words, jumping likely serves a crucial evolutionary function for guppies.

Fishers caught this absolute monstrosity off the coast of New Jersey. The 11-foot, 820-pound shark took over an hour to subdue and tire out before they were finally able to catch it. 

The real shame though, is that they didn't catch this thing a few days later at the (and we swear we are not making this up) South Jersey Shark Tournament. Surely the second largest catch in New Jersey history would have qualified as the winner of that tournament!

With some help from a robotic fish, scientists have discovered that zebrafish are much like humans in at least one way – they get reckless when they get drunk. OK, "drunk" might not be technically accurate, but when exposed to alcohol, the fish show no fear of a robotic version of one of their natural predators, the Indian leaf fish. When they're "sober," they avoid the thing like crazy.
