Here's my 2" largemouth bass fingerling. You cannot see both, but he has 2 tiny fry fish stuffed into that mouth of his. He'll pack away a lot more as he grows up! At this time his record is 3.

For as tiny as he is, he can pack the fry away, and he's FAST! The fry don't have time to get oriented before he gets them.

I'm constantly amazed at the volume of food fish can put down their gullets.  It seems physically impossible sometimes, but "nature finds a way"...

That they do. It also surprises me that fish can stomach a fish that is somewhat close to their size. The Madtom catfish I have was 5" long and could eat a 4.5" long shiner whole. Amazing!
