Barracudas have been known to many people living near the ocean as eating machines similar to sharks but at least much faster than them. Barracudas usually inspect the prey they wish to eat and in a flash they have the fish in their mouth. Barracudas have been known to have rows of razor sharp teeth ready to shred fish apart. When they attack a fish, they usually rip it in half on contact because of its teeth and how fast it is going.




The Great Barracuda is commonly found throughout the reefs and corals in the Caribbean. It can also be found in the warm waters throughout the world example the Indian Ocean. The normal size length of the Great Barracuda ranges from 1.7-2 m long (5.6 ft) and weighs around 25-50 kg (55 pounds-110 pounds) depending on how much food it gets. The Great Barracuda is a natural born killer with very sharp teeth used to slice the meat of other fish it eats. Its diet consists of various fish and other sea creatures since it is the top predator in the reefs it lives in.

The Pick-handle Barracuda lives in the subtropic regions of the Indian Ocean and also including the Pacific.  The average length of the fish is around 30 to 50 cm long and weighs around 11 kg but a record shows of one fish growing to a whopping 170 cm long. They usually feed on smaller fish than themselves and cephalopods like squid. Rarely do they eat any kind of shrimp. They live in schools consisting of many others of its kind.

The Sawtooth Barracuda can grow to a maximum length of around 90 cm. Their range of habitat is around the North of Australia, around Indonesia and the South of the Indian Ocean.

They have numerous fins on them to help them be agile and be able to make sharp turns in a 90 degree angle and even almost a 180.

The Yellowtail Barracuda does not grow very long with a max length of 50 cm long. An easy way to figure out if the fish is a Yellowtail, simply look at its tail if it is yellow.
