It’s one thing for a bass or pike to get greedy and try to eat another fish.

But a trout? That’s pretty unusual.

The odd meal choice was caught on film by National Geographic Magazine photographer Charlie Hamilton James, who then posted the clip to Instagram.

It looks to be a steelhead trout eating a smaller trout, best as the we here at The Guide can tell. Just goes to show you that nature will eat its own if it has to.

Of course, this could just be a territorial battle for the best feeding grounds.

We’re guessing that this didn’t end well for either fish. When fish eats fish, everyone loses.

It’s also a good reminder to get out those big streamers! Who knows? They might just work.

    Just like to point out that these are both brook trout. Here in Maine they are noted for eye balling each other to see who eats who.
