Today's winner is: .TANA BUNNELL, 9, Provo, Utah Because life in the water is so different from our'life on land, we tend to think of it as being en a very low scale. How many people would believe, for example, that fish can communicate with each other? But fishes can make sounds! And they do this in several ways. Fishes make sounds by giving off gass bubbles from a swim bladder. A swim bladder is a balloonlike structure filled with air. The fish controls the amount of gas in the swim bladder. Fishes can make sounds with special drumming muscles. These vibrate the swim bladder wall. They can also produce sounds by rubbing together the teeth in their upper throat. They make sounds by twisting their head or just with swimming motions. But what good would it be to make sounds if other fishes couldn't hear them? The fact is that fishes do hear, and their hearing covers a wide range of sounds. Fishes don't have an outside ear, as we do. They do have something like our inner ear, called - a labyrinth. The labyrinth reports sound vibrations to the brain, where hearing takes place. This innw ear is all that a fish needs. Waterborne sound vibrations move fluid in the fish's inner ear. Sensitive cells report this movement to the brain, and the fish hoars a sound. Fishes make sounds to bring males and females together. Sounds are uttered by males during fighting and courtship. And fish may also recognize each other through the sounds they make. FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Jane: I hear she had a lovely birthday cake. Did you count the candles?
