A fishkeeper has given his Oscar piercings and this video, uploaded onto YouTube, shows the results of his handiwork.
The Oscar, apparently called Brandon, is claimed to be the first fish in the world to have piercings. Let's hope it doesn't catch on!
The video below shows an African tigerfish leaping from the water to snatch a swallow straight out of the air.
Rumours of such behaviour by the predatory African tigerfish (Hydrocynus vittatus) have circulated for decades, but this is the first confirmed record of a freshwater fish preying on birds in flight.
Researchers saw 20 successful fish strikes on these birds during a study at Mapungubwe National Park in South Africa, reports Nature News.
The report by the Unit for Environmental Sciences and Management at North-West University in Potchefstroom, South Africa is published in the Journal of Fish Biology.
