Most fish hide from fear of being eaten. Fish have a cannibalistic nature. It is a known fact a small fish will be eaten by a larger fish. Some will even eat the eggs. If you will take notice, todays fishermen use a false bate to catch fish. These false batesoftenlook like a fish. As lovely as the lakes. ponds,rivers, streams and oceans may look, it is a very hard place for fish to live. It is like living in a war zone. They never know when theirnext swim willbe their last. Often, when a fish is looking for food, a larger fish is looking for food. The smaller fish is a meal for the larger fish. National Geographs has shown several shows about the life of a fish. For people, life can be hard, but be glad we are not like the fish. Atleast we have some protection by law. The law of the fish seems to be.... EAT OR BE EATEN!
