Termites and ants are not the only to perform incredibles swarm intelligence actions think of the school of fish.

“It’s much harder for a predator to avoid being spotted by a thousand fish than it is to avoid being spotted by one. News that a predator is approaching spreads quickly through a school because fish sense from their neighbors that something’s going on and they need to move. When a predator strikes a school of fish, the group is capable of scattering in patterns that make it almost impossible to track any individual. It could explode in a flash, create a kind of moving bubble around the predator, before coming back together and swimming away.”  – by Peter Miller, The Genius of Swarms – National Geographic Magazine
