Incredible Footage Of Flying Fish Trapped Between Predators

BBC/Facebook

This incredible snippet from the BBC show "The Hunt" captures an epic double-edged attack from dorado and frigate birds against a group of flying fish – one of nature’s most beautiful freaks.

While you would think being able to scale between the seas and skies would give you an advantage when escaping predators, it can sometimes double the amount of hungry mouths after you. While shooting out of the water to avoid the jaws of the dorado, the flying fish suddenly find themselves in the midst of frigate birds.

As David Attenborough poetically puts it, “They’re trapped between the devil and the deep blue sea.”
