Seahorses heads are perfectly shaped to sneak up and quickly snatch prey, according to marine scientists from The University of Texas at Austin. In this video, watch a seahorse sneak up on a copepod, which is one of the fastest escape artists around, and use its "pivot feeding" technique to suck the copepod into its mouth.

The seahorse was caught in action using high-speed digital 3-D holography.
