Bit Off More Than He Could Chew

Talk about a big bite!

A Pike in the Netherlands was recently found with another fish inside the pike’s mouth. The Pike was apparently attempting to swallow the second fish. Unfortunately, his attempt came with a hefty price. The Pike died during his gluttonous snack.

“A pike is not an alligator or a python – it will not accommodate similar-sized food,” he told the BBC. “Because the teeth on a pike go backward, it would have been unable to release its grip on the other fish. It was a death grip for the fish.”
