285>_10010664The Fish that Digs a Well

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, meet a fish that knows how to dig a well.

With its large mouth and extra long jaw bones, the well‑digger fish is perfectly equipped to dig holes in the sea bottom using its mouth as a dredging machine. The well‑digger then collects small pieces of shell and coral and presses them into the side of its hole. He then backs into his hole, tail first, safe from all danger. His hole also provides him with a hiding place from which to surprise his prey.

The well‑digger can be given credit neither for the engineering skill necessary to line a hole to prevent collapse nor for the special feature of an extra-long jaw well‑designed to build its well. The well‑digger is an example of how the Creator gives gifts that we don’t usually think about, including biological design as well as intelligence.
