Oh Snap!!!


Gerard’s Matamata Chelus fimbriata sends shock waves through the fish world

We had to slow this video down to see that the turtle actually DID get one of the fish! If you don’t believe us, slow it down and see for yourself!

If you liked the Matamata video from a few days ago, this one might be even more entertaining. Here, Gerard shares a short video that shows one of his 3 year old Matamata Turtles (Chelus fimbriata) snapping at a group of a fish. This species is known to have the weakest bite of all turtles, which it makes up for with it’s unique, lightning fast vacuum feeding technique that you see here.

Stay tuned for more information about Gerard’s projects.
