We have most likely all heard the expression, “He has a memory like a goldfish” and have been told that goldfish forget what they saw the last time they circumnavigated the goldfish bowl.
Two goldfish in a bowl.
“Hello. Nice to see you”.
Then one of them spots a castle behind the plastic plant.
“Wow nice castle!”.
Swims off around the castle and bumps into the same goldfish again!
“Hello. Nice to see you”, he says again and what’s that over there?”.
“Wow nice castle” etc.
So my question is, “Do goldfish really have such short memories?”.
