Despite their large and fearsome appearance, the pickhandle barracudas (Sphyraena jello) of the Gulf of Thailand are a pretty mellow bunch. Barracudas tend to group in large schools but also hunt alone. As opportunistic predators, they rely on short, but very fast sprints (up to 43km/h in short bursts) to capture prey that can be bigger than themselves.

But as said before, these guys are a pretty docile bunch.
