This is intriguing. I'm curious if this behaviour is known.


Remarkable photo. What initially struck me was it looks like one stream
comes from the center forehead, but this must be an illusion as the stream
is cut off or doesn't catch the light.  The detail is not quite good
enough to tell. This unrelated photo linked below seems to show a pair of
nozzles below the ventral edge of the rostrum, and they might be
forward-facing urinary openings?
