Prima Ballerina of the Sea

Prima Ballerina of the Sea

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we see why one strange fish deserves to be called the prima ballerina of the sea.

Prima Ballerina of the SeaThe long and skinny shrimpfish must surely be one of the strangest sea creatures to come from the hand of a Creator who never ceases to amaze us with His wonders. Shrimpfish spend their lives in the ocean with their mouths pointed straight down and their tails above them in a vertical stance. Not only do they feed like this. They swim like this, too.

Evolutionist Frank Fish – yes, that’s his name – said that the usual fin found on the backs of fish is actually on the shrimpfish tail, making it easier for the shrimpfish to turn easily. “They do full pirouettes on their heads,” he added. “I’d like to see a prima ballerina do that.”

With such unusual swimming abilities, the shrimpfish provides big evidence for creation!
