He is a relative of the flapping rays, the stringy tailed sting rays and the so-called devil-fish that is not so fierce as it looks. The torpedo fish fires off torpedos, but not the sort you would expect. Its ammunition is powerful jolts of electricity. Ho.wever, it is not related to the famous electric eel, which' keeps up a constant barrage of jolts that whack its friends, its enemies and even itself. About 340 gristle-boned rays and skates belong in the bat- winged Order Batoidei. Some families in this fishy group have whip-tails armed with venomous stingers. Others do not. The 36 species of electri<? THE SUBSTANCETHAT DISSOLVES FAT WHILE FASTI N& HAS BEEN ISOLATED AND MAY BE AN IMPORTANT 'FACTOR IN A SUCCESSFUL, lOfTWUUTg PROWCTipNOF THgFAT-PgSTROY|N$ IJU16D - -9 uinssido > OA-OA 'Z omo rays are in the Family Torpedinidae. They are fitted with special organs that deliver large 6r small jolts of electricity. In this group we find the genus Torpedo, which includes the 13 or so large and small torpedo fishes. These stunning fellows enjoy life in tropical and semitropical seas, from the tidal shores out to waters almost a mile deep. A couple called the numbfish and the crampfish live off Australia—where they sometimes jolt cramps and numbness into the muscles of human swimmers. The qrampfish is a half-oval- shaped blob with no tail worth mentioning and the numbfish is no longer than 17 inches. At least two larger torpedo fishes flap off the Atlantic and Pacific shores of North America. The speckled Atlantic species is a roundish disk attached to a strong thick body with fleshy fins and a fat little fan-shaped tail. His average weight is around 100 pounds, although whopping 200 pounders have been caught. The California torpedo fish tends to be larger and 200 pounders are not uncommon. A large torpedo fish can send an electric jolt of 200 volts through the water. This is enough to stun a man for a minute or so, or knock him off his feet. And a shot from a torpedo fish has been known to shock a leopard shark clear out of its aquarium tank w onto the boaro> walk. The two batteries of ator- P£do fish are located in the wings, one on each side of the flat head. These electee or- gans are modified muscle tissue, built from small disks, called plate or prisms. The disks are separated by fibrous connective tissue and stacked in neat columns. Usually there are 400 disks in a column and each battery is a bundle of 150 to 1,000 columns. Apparently a torpedo fish can control the electric shots. He uses them to shock mackerel and other frisky fishes he fancies for dinner. Then he swallows his stunned victims whole. He also uses the battery to protect himself from sharks and other suspected enemies. When threatened, a la/ge torpedo fish shoots off a barrage of electric shocks. The first shot, maybe 200 volts, is the strongest. Gradually his power fails. After the series, his ammunition is spent and it takes him several days to recharge his batteries. Baby torpedo fishes are born alive and they can shoot off mild - shocks, even before birth. Send questions on postal card to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 2406, Phoenix, Ariz., 85002.
