Berkeley, California-AP -- The mating call of the toadfish is music to the ears of some scientists.

Some males of a certain type of toadfish hum to attract egg-laying females. The toadfish makes the sound by vibrating a set of sonic muscles on its air bladder six-thousand times a minute for more than an hour at a stretch.

One scientist says that kind of muscular capability could lead to clues on fighting human muscle diseases. His research is aimed at understanding how to coach human muscles to work faster and longer.

The love lives of toadfish have proved fruitful for other research, too.

Another scientist has been studying how the fish make and hear noises, research that could eventually be used to help treat human auditory problems.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>MY OPINION: I bet they got a gubmint grant for this, too.
