Event: Big Brains!

Published: 4/26/2024 12:30:00 PM

Not many fish can be called true brainiacs like today’s new arrival, the Bottlenose Mormyrid. Its Latin name is mormyrus longirostris, and it’s commonly known as the eastern bottle-nosed mormyrid or simply the elephant-snout fish. In Fishing Clash, we’ll know this one as the Bottlenose Mormyrid, the new legendary fish in the Victoria Falls fishery! We’re introducing it into the game with today’s “Big Brains” Event and invite anglers to learn a bit more about this fascinating creature!

Of course, all anglers are also invited to visit the TSG.STORE for the best possible offers. It’s really a no-brainer: using the TSG.STORE just pays off for any of your fishing needs!

So, with all the gear ready, it’s time for some brainy trivia regarding the Bottlenose Mormyrid! The mormyrus longirostris is found in various freshwater habitats across Africa, including rivers, lakes, and floodplains. These cute-looking fellows are prevalent in regions like the Nile basin and other parts of East Africa. What’s really fascinating about them, is that they’re capable of something called electrolocation. The Bottlenose Mormyrids generate an electric field around their bodies to navigate and find food in murky waters where visibility is low. Surrounded by the electrostatic field, they’re able to detect objects and other organisms based on any disturbances in the field! For us, humans (especially those of the clumsy sort, like the one writing these words), this seems like a superpower that would result in fewer collisions with random furniture and definitely less bruising!

When the big-brained Bottlenose Mormyrids need a snack, they turn their elongated snouts into the muddy bottoms of whatever aqueducts they live in and find invertebrates (such as worms or snails) and small fish lurking in the depths. They’re not only a fascinating subject of ecological interest but for neurobiological research as well, due to their unique electric abilities, which offer insights into sensory perception and communication in aquatic environments. Perhaps one day, we’ll be able to harness these properties to our advantage. For now, however, let’s just sit back, cast our rods, and try to reel in these legends of Victoria Falls! Good luck, Anglers, and don’t let these Bottlenoses outsmart you during the Event!
