Romantic artists are born not only in Georgia. Look,  what a work of art  was created by a small Japanese work of art creates a small Japanese pufferfish  to express his feelings for his beloved one.

His masterpiece is a mathematical perfection analysed down to the smallest detail.

More than 500 different scientific studies confirmed that the fish are endowed with complex intellectual skills. Here are just a few of them:

  1. Fish talks  to each other due to queaks, squeals, and other low-frequency sounds that humans can hear only with special instruments. They can also send messages to each other with “Morse Code” or ” sign language”. They make warning signals, for example, swaying the body from side to side or pointing at the hidden fish.
  2. Fish like physical contact with other fish and often gently rub against each other, just like cats do.
  3. Some fish plant gardens, encouraging the growth of tasty algae and weeding out the types they don’t like.
  4. Fish use different tools, they build nests, like birds, where they raise their babies  or hide for rest or hunting. Some fish lay eggs on leaves or small stones in order carry eggs with them in case of danger. Or they guard their  nests and fan the eggs with their fins to create a current of fresh, oxygenated water.
  5. Fish has the learning abilities and remembering. So the rainbowfish which learnt to escape from a net, remembered how they did it 11 months later. This is equivalent to a human recalling a lesson learnt 40 years ago. Goldfish have longer “sustained attention” spans than humans, according to a study by Microsoft, which found that the small fish can concentrate for nine seconds compared to eight for humans. Fish remember colors, voices.
  6. Fish can count, distinguish symbols and solve inequalities.
  7. Fishes possess social intelligence. They can remember who they met in the past and in what circumstances and modify their behavior accordingly. Fishes have the skills of cooperation and planning.

Fish feels pain. Fish, like the higher vertebrates, have a nervous system that perceives and reacts to pain.
