Barracuda

One of the fiercest of fishes is the barracuda.

These slim, alert fishes with jutting jaws and razorlike teeth can be found living in the warmer parts of the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean.

There are several kinds of barracudas.  The largest of them is the great barracuda.  This bit fish may grow to be a 6 feet long.

It has strong jaws and a mouthful of razor-sharp teeth that may be nearly an inch long.

It is sometimes called the “tiger of the sea”.  It fears nothing, and will attack anything that moves in the water, including man.

Sharks are often blamed for wounds really made  this fearsome fish.  In fact, many people think barracudas are more to be feared than most sharks.

When it finds a school of fish, the barracuda slowly stalks them.  Then it dives into their midst, biting and slashing with its sharp teeth.  - Dick Rogers
