  1. I don’t think it physically punches but uses the water pressure to send a shockwave through the water.

    They also have like 9 colors they can see or something

    Crazy little guys

I don’t mean “real” baseballs, I mean mini satellites for phone service or something. We could even bring the fish tank to the top of Mt. Everest or something to make it easier for them to do it.
