Solitary or schooling predators that feed upon small fish and squid. They have spindle-shaped
bodies, two widely-separated dorsal fins and razor-sharp teeth. They
hunt by moving almost imperceptibly into range then lunging forward with
incredible speed, cutting prey to bits if not swallowing whole.
Rare attacks on swimmers are usually caused when it strikes a reflective
item such as jewelry or metal mask frames. Reduce this by removing
shiny objects and avoid swimming in murky water.
