The Strange Case of the Singing Fish

He certainly won’t win any singing competitions on TV but this vocalist is the subject of today’s Creation Moments Minute.

During the mid-1980s, the residents at the north end of San Francisco Bay began complaining about a strange droning noise coming from the Bay. Puzzled and tired citizens began a search for the source of the noise. While every thing they looked at was ruled out, the hum continued through the long nights.

Eventually, biologists joined the search. Soon, the toadfish – also known as the singing fish – was identified as the source of the sounds. The droning noise was actually male fish offering their mating call to attract females.

The Bible tells us that all things were created by the same God Who was made flesh for our salvation. Since communication is part of God’s nature, we should not be surprised to find communication so universal among the creatures He made.
