a swordfish: a large fish with a very long upper jaw that resembles a sword
noun
Note: Recent research has just shown that a muscle 'heater' around the eye increases it's temperature from 10 to 15 °C. The purpose of this would be to improve the optical capacity of the swordfish and to thus improve its predatory capacity.

Swordfish (Xiphias gladius) are large, predatory fish characterized by a long, flat bill.
