Animals Video

This is the jaw-dropping moment a hungry eel snared a PUFFER FISH for dinner.

The angry-looking eel crept up on the unsuspecting puffer fish, before suddenly striking.

The eel then slithers away, before gobbling the puffer fish whole.

The dramatic scene was caught on camera by diver Vital Bazarov, during a night dive in the Red Sea in Dahab, Egypt.

Vital said: “I was diving with friends when I saw the moray eel at the bottom of the ocean.

“I turned my camera on and began to shoot the video.

“After a while the eel grabbed the fish and started to eat it.

“It was amazing to see.

“I’d never seen such interesting creatures on a night dive before.”
