Catfish hunting pigeons

French researchers at the University of Toulouse captured this video of catfish hunting pigeons on the shore of the Tarn River in southwest France.

The filmmakers were able to get an incredible aerial view of catfish briefly beaching themselves to grab the pigeons. Have a look.


  1. HEH!

    and 5 minutes after the survivors fly around, they'll land right back down near the water to get picked off... I love nature!

  2. Thank god another species tries to rid us of those damn rats with wings... I am glad catfish finds them tasty too...
