Caught in the Act is all about being at the right place at the right time. When catching the natural world on film, sometimes it takes years to capture the rare and spectacular moments that remind us how amazing nature truly is. In it’s fifth season, Caught in the Act is an absolute adrenaline rush, reliving the close encounters of professional and amateur film makers who travel into these remote and wild locations.
Tonight on Caught in the Act travel to Cozumel, Mexico and witness through the eyes of sport diver, Paul Mila, the true power of the barracuda otherwise known as the tigers of the sea.
Their razor-sharp teeth, which face both forwards and backwards, make it impossible for fish to escape their grips and they can rip prey to shreds in a matter of mere seconds. These snaggle-tooth creatures have been around for more than 50 million years. With torpedo-like bodies and small, smooth scales, the barracuda can swim in bursts of up to 25 miles per hour. Try swimming away from that fish!
