Forget piranhas! Terrifying video shows giant kingfish feeding frenzy

They look calm until it's time for a feed!

A video has gone viral featuring a man taunting a school of trevallies – also known as giant kingfish – with a massive tuna before tossing it into the water.

What happens next is an explosion of fins and foam as the hungry fish swarm all over the tasty morsel. And while we can’t see it we can only presume the poor tuna is getting demolished.

Giant kingfish can grow up to 1.6m long and weigh as much as 80kg. They also have been known to chow down on turtles and small dolphins – yikes!
