Fish Soars to Devour Bird (Nature)

The bird-eating tendencies of the ferocious African tigerfish have historically been discarded as mere myth — that is, until now.

This video and supplementary text by Nature allow viewers to observe a food chain reversal with their own eyes. The footage is truly spectacular (and the banjo music doesn’t hurt either).
