Have You Ever Seen a Flying Fish Fly? (video)

Imagine you are a fish swimming along minding your own business when a big predator comes along and wants to eat you. What do you do? Easy. You just fly away from the danger.

This BBC/Discovery Life segment tells an incredible, uplifting story. After the fish fly out of danger they find a nice floating palm frond and lay their eggs on it. Then the male fish come along and deposit their sperm.

Life goes on.

Elvira - for the record, Care2 is not blocking anything. The video is hosted by Youtube, and they're the ones that control who sees what. I suspect it has something to do with BBC contractual rights.

I saw these once in the Indian Ocean as they were racing in front of dolphins that were swimming along side a big boat I was on. It was incredibly cool. They launch out of the water, pause a split second, then start flapping their wings rapidly and zoom out across the water. The slow-mo of the video is cool, but you don't get to see how fast they flap and suddenly start moving.

I saw them in Hawaii on a scuba trip. They were so amazing and wonderful to watch.
