The Fishing Frog

I am going to play a game I have no idea if it will work but see if I can examine both second -sight and genius exclusively in fishy terms.

Can the interest in second- sight in the late 17th century be understood as a potential means of measuring intelligence?

What ‘special functions’ allow a frog- fish (a very slow moving animal) to catch the swiftest of fishes?

I would be safe making the claim and relationship with intelligence using Aristotelian biology in ancient Greece, I think, that of course tells me little about the late 17th century but it suggests the subject may have a fishy history, that at this point I can’t ignore.

The fishing- frog or sea devil is where to start with this aspect I think.
