Awesome slow motion capture of pet largemouth bass eating goldfish.



When bass ambush prey they open their mouths wide, flair their gills and create a vacuum suction of water that draws in its prey. Once inside the mouth the bass has well developed pharyngeal teeth in the back of the throat that crush prey before passing it along to the gut to be digested.

These teeth are often referred to as the bass’s “crushers”.

You know the goldfish in this video have been crushed when you see small scales being exhaled by the largemouth.
