anhinga bird spotted the fish swimming in a river

the hunt is on target!

ouch! this fish meets a spikey end when a bird spears it using its beak


the crafty anhinga can swim like a U-boat with its body submerged below the waterline and only its neck protruding like a periscope to creep up on its unsuspecting prey before spearing its target with a sudden thrust

oooo dear.. i'll be dead soon


the predator shook its meal free before throwing it into the air and catching it in her mouth, swallowing it down in one

the anhinga sometimes known as snakebird, american darter, water turkey, devil bird or darter
