Have you ever wondered how fish eat? Using a Phantom camera, Destin captured the exact moment in which a barramundi opens its mouth to swallow. 

In this video, Destin interviews venom biologist Dr Jamie Seymour from James Cook University in Australia, who explains the complex mechanism that allows fish to suck in water and food through the mouth and then release water through their gills.

Watch the video and discover something new today—it’ll blow your mind.
