The pike generally hide in wait for prey, holding perfectly still for long periods, and is then capable of remarkable acceleration, sometimes propelling itself a metre into the air (though it rarely leaves the surface). It catches its prey sideways with its sharp teeth, in order to kill it, before turning lengthwise to swallow.
