Barracudas are large predatory fish that can grow up to 1.8 meter. They are excellent hunters who catch their prey by fast surprise attacks. Barracudas rarely attack people, and if they do it often involves spearfishing or hand feeding. If you see these fish when diving or snorkeling, just watch them without provoking the animals. They can also be seen in groups.
