Muskies are greedy.

Check out this tiger muskie trying to eat a trout nearly half its size. I mean, hasn’t it ever seen Willy Wonka? It offers some very specific advice for gluttons:

“What do you get when you guzzle down sweets?
Eating as much as an elephant eats
What are you at getting terribly fat?
What do you think will come of that?”

But what would a dumb fish know? Let’s watch it try and choke this thing down.

(One note: the video is mistitled “Northern Pike vs Trout.” It’s definitely a tiger muskie.)



The video ends before we get an answer, but we can guess that it doesn’t work out well for the muskie. They’re known to choke and die on fish that are too big.

What’s the dumbest thing YOU’VE seen a fish do?
