School of Pelican Barracuda (Sphyraena idiastes) We swam through a School of Pelican Barracuda (Sphyraena idiastes). Large barracuda may slash prey into pieces before swallowing them. Their lower jaw is larger than the upper. The front of each jaw is toothless and there is a series of large triangular teeth along each side of both jaws. Dive/snorkel trip to Floreana.
