Despite what Ted Lasso and Finding Nemo might say, scientists have recently discovered that the famous myth that goldfish forget things immediately might actually be false.
A group of scientists at Oxford University just completed a whole bunch of studies on goldfish and their memory. They concluded that goldfish are actually really good at remembering things like where they’ve been and recent route they have swam along.
So just remember that next time you think the goldfish in your kitchen didn’t see you sneak that last cookie.
