Take a look at this video showing a close view of a seahorse silently stalking its prey before, like lightning, takes in its prey whole. Like sharks, orcas and humans, seahorses are also considered as apex predators.

Apex predators are organisms that, in natural environments, sits at the top of the food chain and have no other creatures that specifically hunt them as food.

Seahorses are diurnal hunters, meaning they actively search for food twice a day. An average seahorse is capable of eating up to 30-50 pieces of food every day. Examples of food they eat are shrimps, copepods, planktons, and small crabs.
