The Silver Arowana (Osteoglossum bicirrhosum) long fish, often found skimming the surface in search for things to satisfy its appetite. BBC Earth Unplugged took footage of this fish as it did what it does best: catching prey. The amazing video shows the Arowana leaping out of the water to catch crickets – the food Sam and Si from BBC Earth are feeding them – in slow motion.
