You may think you know fish. But do you really? Here are 10 facts about fish that you may not know!

Yes, this is reposted. Apparently Rito hates fish, so they deleted the last post. **10: **A fish can drown in water. Like humans, fish need oxygen, so if there isn’t enough oxygen in the water, they will suffocate. ------ **9: **A fish does not add new scales as it grows, but the scales it has increase in size. In this way, growth rings are formed and the rings reveal the age of a fish. ------- **8: **Sharks are the only fish that have eyelids. -------- **7: **Lungfish can live out of water for several years. It secretes a mucus cocoon and burrows itself under the unbaked earth. It takes in air with its lung through a built-in breathing tube that leads to the surface. A lungfish has both gills and a lung -------- **6: **Catfish have over 27,000 taste buds. Humans have around 7,000. {{champion:223}} -------- **5: **Anableps, four-eyed fish, can see above and below water at the same time. ------- **4: **There are approximately 32,000 different kinds of fish in the world today, which is more than all the other kinds of vertebrates combined. ------- **3: **Unlike bony fish, sharks and rays do not have swim bladders. They have to swim all the time, even when they are sleeping. Otherwise, they will sink to the bottom of the ocean. ------- **2: **Male anglerfish are much smaller than the female. While the female can reach up to 24 inches long, the males barely reach 1.6 inches long and live as parasites on their mates. They stay together for life. As the male ages, he gets smaller and smaller. ------ And finally, the number one fact about fish: #Fish are friends, not food.
