Flying Fish Picked Off From Above And Below | The Hunt | BBC Earth

Flying fish can make powerful, self-propelled leaps out of water into air, where their long, wing-like fins enable gliding flight for considerable distances. It appears these Flying Fish are in a no win situation, picked off above the surface by Frigatebird’s and devoured underwater by the Dorado.

  1. Flying fish said to God: l've evolved wings to fly, fleeing from the big fish, and then the evolution let me fall prey to big birds in the air. Unfair !
    God : You should have evolved into bigger large size to eat them up. Your evolution way goes wrong.

  2. Just imagine how much further the fish's flying ability might have evolved if it weren't for those pesky FrigateBirds.
    Watching fish, soaring over our towns and cities…..

  3. Damn. This fish just couldn't catch a break. Evolved an awesome method to escape being prey for on species only to become prey for another. 🤦‍♂️smh. I feel so bad for them. When is the Disney movie coming out tho?!?!
