AverageAmericanGuy: these fish may have evolved to mimic humans as they passed through the Arabian desert
AverageAmericanGuy: It's an interesting phenomenon to study, but to attribute the use of body signals to higher order brain function may be a bit premature. These are fish, some of the dumbest vertebrates in the ocean. What may be helping them is their location in the Red Sea, rather than other water bodies. Much of the world's important history happened in that general area, and so these fish may have evolved to mimic humans as they passed through the Arabian desert to Egypt and Israel.Pretty cool stuff, no doubt about it.
TheGregiss: *YAWN* Seen it! The ugly fish come out and that bug eyed Jewish kid gets his brain pulled out. Then some thing about lasers. I dunno.
