Remember the awesome video of my pet ghost knifefish doing a flip?  You can check it out again HERE if you forget.  Anyhow, it is apparent from owning these critters that they don’t move like your average fish.  They can go forward, backward, up, down, and of course flip!  Scientists have taken notice and have designed a highly maneuverable robot based on the knifefish swimming.  Check out the article HERE, including the super cool video!  (Thanks for the heads up, Marianne!)  Love it!!
