Baby reef fish survives after freed from lionfish’s mouth

A juvenile reef fish lives to swim another day after being pulled from the jaws of an invasive predator.

Lionfish cullers Brittany Balli and Aaron Hunt of Cayman Eco Divers found the young black bar soldier fish inside the lionfish’s mouth.

It took a couple of seconds, but this little survivor revived itself after being returned to the water. He swam away to continue his life on the reef.

Lionfish have no natural predators, and each one eats thousands and thousands of baby reef fish in a lifetime.
