It’s a bird… it’s a plane.. Nope it’s a flying fish!
So you may have heard of these freakishly fascinating fish before.. but how much do you know about their reproductive cycle?
Yeah, we didn’t know a lot about it either until we came across this wild footage on an episode of BBC Life. We certainly do not know everything about them now, but what we can tell you is that flying fish are dedicated to protecting their young. So much so that they sometimes die just trying to lay an egg.
Watch it for yourself…

Pretty wild right?
So the next time you hear, see or think of those pretty fish dancing across the sea’s surface, remember the risks their parents took to bring them into existence!
