Are there any fish in the ocean that spit venom like the spitting cobra?

    There are no fish that spit venom like a spitting cobra although there are still fish that use toxins to catch prey. There are, however, some species of fish and shrimp for that matter that shoot jets of water to catch prey. The archer fish shoots water out off its mouth at prey above the water surface. At the Denver Aquarium, the workers hold crickets in their fingers and the fish will knock the crickets into the water by shooting water at them. Also, there is a shrimp species call the pistol shrimp that cocks its claw and shoots an extremely hot jet of bubbles to stun its prey.
