larval Nemo hunting

For the past several years I've been giving clownfish eggs to a group at the University of Hawaii who are studying how larval fish learn to catch their prey.   The research group has gotten some cool video footage and I thought some of you might like to see it. Here's a short clip of a 12 day old clownish hunting an adult calanoid copepod.

Reminds me more of a grouper than a clownfish larva!
