Fish are often ridiculed for not being very intelligent, or for not having the strongest memory. Of course it all depends on the type of fish, but the latest viral video making waves online proves that some fish are in fact quite intelligent.
Take this Flowerhorn cichlid fish, for example. It’s an ornamental aquarium fish, often noted for their vivid colours and their distinctively shaped head. But after this video made the rounds online, perhaps the Flowerhorn cichlid fish has earned itself a new distinction.
This video shows a man playing fetch with his fish, a game that had typically been reserved for dogs before this video’s release. The man is seen tossing a blue toy into the water while the fish swims to the toy, retrieves it and pushes it back to the man.
The video has already received over 600,000 views despite being uploaded only two days ago.
These two make an unusual pair, but you can see the man has no problem playing fetch with his little pal!
