Food Habits:
A. anhinga preys primarily on fish (family Percidae, Centrarchidae, Peociliidae, Cyprinodontidae), but its diet can also include aquatic invertebrates and insects. Although not a particularly fast swimmer, it is an effective aquatic hunter, relying on its quick neck and sharp bill to catch prey. It targets slower-moving species of fish and stalks them underwater, finally striking out with its long neck and spearing the prey with its beak. It then brings the prey above water and jerks it off its bill, manipulating it in order to swallow the fish head first. (Owre 1967).
