A few interesting Barracuda facts: Diet - Fish, fish and more fish! They are also known to snack on crustaceans and squid. Barracudas are adept at both the sit-and-wait ambush as well as the active predatory styles of hunting. When a barracuda ambushes, it does so in a flash. Barracuda's are capable of great bursts of speed (25mph). Their sense of sight is extremely important when hunting; unlike other fish species who rely on other senses, barracudas sight it keen. They are attracted to shiny objects, like a quick, silver or white fish.
Behavior - The dominant barracuda prefers to swim the ocean solo. The exception to their “alone time” happens during daytime hours when juveniles and adults travel in schools or when groups of adults temporarily join together to hunt or as a means of protection.
Life Expectancy- Barracudas can live anywhere from 10 to 15 years. Barracudas don’t have many natural predators besides sharks and orca whales. If they can avoid fisherman, this ensures them a relatively long life. Due to their aggressive nature, Barracudas are one of the most dominant predators in tropical waters.
