Diving Fun Fact

Barracuda Tornado, Sipadan, Malaysia

Barracuda use the element of surprise to prey on smaller fish, crustaceans, squid and marine invertebrates. They are capable of swimming up to 40 km/25 miles in short bursts to overcome their prey and devour them with their long rows of sharp teeth. Because they can grow up to 2 meters/6.6 feet, barracuda have few natural predators besides sharks, killer whales and humans. This is a close up of a barracuda tornado we took in Sipadan, Malaysia.
