Fish don’t only swim some of them talk, sing, or search oceans for their lost offspring.
They do these all the time in movies and stories where animal characters abound, sometimes supported by human characters. Look at your pets and read about creatures in mythology and you will see that animals and mythical creatures are either the main characters or sidekicks in fiction, as well as in real life stories.
