SEA SWALLOW (CHEILOPOGON HETERURUS E HIRUNDICHTHYS RONDELETII)
The pectoral and ventral fins are incredibly developed and exceed the tail in length. The “flight” out of the water is often undertaken to escape any predators. This unpredictable behavior lasts about thirty seconds, during which the animal can travel a few hundred meters, remaining above the surface of the water with its fins outstretched.
They are both pelagic species and feed mainly on plankton and small fish; in turn they can be prey to larger animals, such as tuna and swordfish
