fish hydra

The hydra is only dangerous to very little fish. It is a low type of life, a polyp, that devours fish up to about 3/16 -in. long, and also daphnia.

It has from 3 to seven tentacles spreading from the mouth in a star-like formation, to which the thin elongated body is attached. The actual shape isn't the exact same in all specimens. They differ widely, making it nearly impossible to describe them with out going into volumes of detail.

It attacks by waiting for a fish or daphnia to pass near sufficient to be caught by the tentacles.
