Sea eagle catches and flies off with fully-inflated puffer fish

A SEA eagle has its talons full finding something to eat — a fully-inflated puffer fish.

The majestic bird circled with its prickly catch — which expand when threatened — before vanishing to eat it in the Andaman Sea off Thailand.


The amazing sight was spotted by wildlife photographer Sergey Savvi, 40, over the Andaman Sea off the coast of Thailand.

Sergey said: "It was a remarkable sight for me – and the first time that I managed to photograph an eagle with prey.

"The fish remained inflated the whole time.

"It is typical for that species to inflate in dangerous situations, especially such as this one.

"Some species of this fish are poisonous, and carry a neurotoxin in their internal organs that is over 1,000 times more potent than cyanide.

"I just hope that this exotic breakfast wasn't lethal for the eagle."
