In this undated photo provided by researcher Alex Jordan in February 2019, a cleaner wrasse interacts with its reflection in a mirror placed on the outside of the aquarium glass. The mirror itself cannot be seen in this photo because the aquarium glass itself becomes reflective at the viewing angle of the camera, but the fish sees the aquarium glass as transparent because of its direct viewing angle. In a report released on Thursday, Feb 7, 2019, scientists say that 10 fish they studied can pass a standard test of recognizing themselves in a mirror _ and that is posing a key question for experts in animal mental prowess. Does this 50-year-old test for self-awareness in animals really show that ability? (Alex Jordan via AP)
