Comet: The Smartest Fish In The World (VIDEO)

Introducing Comet the Goldfish, who's currently on track to become the smartest fish in the world.

Comet can play football, basketball, limbo, play fetch, and even slalom around a series of poles.

According to the Daily Mail:

Dr Pomerleau already holds the official world record for having the fish with the largest repertoire of tricks, with a three year-old calico fantail named Albert Einstein.

But four inch long Comet has already learnt Albert's array of tricks and is set to take the crown of the world's most intelligent goldfish.

Jealous? Want your own super-fish?

Dr Pomerleau, from Los Angeles, California, has teamed up with pet product firm R2 Solutions to design a special kit to help people train their fish.

The kit features an array of training tools including goal posts, slalom poles and tunnels for your pet to swim through, as well as an instructional DVD.

R2 Solution president Russ Ronat said: "When people see the tricks, after the initial disbelief, they want to learn how its done and teach their own fish too.

Check out the video of Comet and the training kit below.
