For every beautiful sight nature provides us there is typically an equally terrifying creature or natural occurrence that reminds us just how awful it can be to find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Take birds near the ocean, for instance. One second they’re just flying around having a good time and decide to take a rest on the water. It seems safe enough until we realize nature is never that simple and created the Gian Trevally to remind birds they’re never safe in the water.
Giant Trevally are basically the embodiment of pure terror where birds are related. That’s because these hungry fish have an insatiable appetite for anything with feathers that comes near them. They don’t just eat the bird either, they leap out of the water in such a vicious way that it looks like they’re one-hand catching a Hail Mary pass in the end zone to win the game.
