Baby duckling is on the menu for the pike in these two videos.
Yesterday we posted a video of attempted pike cannibalism, so we thought it would be fitting to show these two videos. Both of them show similar situations: a large pike stalks a duckling on the surface and snatches it up for quick meal. Here’s the first video.
And then there’s this video filmed in Fairbanks, Alaska. This young coot didn’t fare any better.
Pike are considered an aggressive fish species, and will often resort to cannibalism when food is scarce. After watching these videos, you can see they’ll eat just about anything.
