Fiercest Fish

Barracuda are pikelike saltwater fish.  They are sometimes called “tiger of the sea” because of their pierce nature.

One of the fiercest of fishes is the barracuda.  These slender, pikelike fishes with jutting jaws and razorlike teeth live in the warmer waters of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

There are several kinds of barracudas.  The largest of them is the great barracuda.  This big fish may grow to be 6 feet long.  It is sometimes called the “tiger of the sea.”

It seems to fear nothing and may attack anything that moves in the water, including man.  In fact, many people think some barracudas are more to be feared than most sharks.

When the barracuda finds a school of fish, it slowly stalks them, then dives into their midst, biting and slashing with its sharp teeth and powerful jaws.

Barracuda are among the fastest fishes.  A four-foot-long barracuda can swim 25 miles an hour of more, for short distances. – Dick Rogers
