A teeny-weeny baby swordfish is so small that it’ll fit on your finger tip!

The elongated, round-bodied swordfish with its sword-like bill, does not spear its prey, which would be awfully tricky to de-skewer, rather, they slash and catch their food. However, when swordfish are babies, they’re little, and that pointy protrusion is merely a toothpick!

To emphasize how big these extremely small baby fish grow, the largest swordfish on record was 4.55 m (14.9 ft) and weighed 650 kg (1,430 lb). The average swordfish is around 3 m (9.8 ft) in length, and 113 kg (250 lb) in weight.

So, when we saw this little one, as big as a fingertip, we just had to share it with you all!
