This puts a whole new spin on 'biting off more than you can chew!'
It's a 'fish eat fish' world out there, with a fine line between being a predator or becoming the prey. At the top of the freshwater food chain sits the mighty muskie, although really, a jumbo northern pike could certainly give the fish of 10,000 casts a run for it's money. That wasn't the case in this incredible encounter, however, when one bad-to-the-bone muskie decided to show a good-sized pike who's boss.
Cody John Wolters, who resides in North Dakota, was out paddling in his kayak July 8 when he came across a pretty awesome sight: a mammoth muskie had T-boned a northern pike and was flat out refusing to let go. Lucky for us, Wolters shot a short video as well as a few still shots to memorialize the epic event.
Here's the video:
And here are some cool snapshots:
Pretty incredible discovery, right? Do you think this muskie will eventually turn the pike and swallow it whole?
This encounter does remind us of a cool gallery post we recently featured which showcased a variety of fish with BIG appetites. You can check that one out HERE.
Gluttony. It sure runs rampant in the fish world.
