Barracuda

The fierce ray-finned-fish known as the Barracuda is one of the sea's most formidable hunters, and has prominent fang-like teeth much like the Piranha. Of its many species, the Great Barracuda is the largest, sometimes reaching a length of six feet. Although it's rare for humans to be attacked by these creatures it does happen from time to time. They are not known to kill, but can do significant damage, and if this isn't enough to have you sufficiently frightened of these fierce creatures, just listen to what these experts on the predatory fish have to say.
