A fish has heroin-like bite, scientists say
Scientists from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and the University of Queensland have solved the mystery of how a fish with sharp fangs gives a pain-free bite, the BBC wrote.
The researchers discovered that the fang-blenny, a tiny reef-dwelling fish, has a venom that is laced with pain-killing chemicals, according to the BBC.
They say the discovery, published in the journal Current Biology, is an example of the medical secrets that are hidden in our oceans, the BBC added.
