Visitors to Collector's Corner, here at the Science Museum of Minnesota, often ask questions about our flying fish mount. "Do they really fly"? "How do they fly"?
This link to a Discovery News post titled IT'S A BIRD, IT'S A PLANE, IT'S A...A...FISH! has a great video and some new discoveries about these amazing fish.

I guess I'm in a nautical mood today -- here's a link to video of a tribe of Asian island people and their rituals of launching a new fishing boat. But they just don't go fishing for ordinary fish, they're after flying fish!

Okay, make your guess. Is the world record for flight by a flying fish 10 seconds, 25 seconds, 45 seconds or 1 minute and 10 seconds? Watch this video to find out and see the fish in action.
