This footage shows a large, hungry fish that appears to have choked to death while trying to eat a smaller fish after its owner forgot to feed it.
The incident took place in the city of Cangzhou, which is located in north-eastern China’s Hebei province, on Tuesday 14th December.
In the video, the large fish, whose species is currently unclear although some local media reported that it was a type of shark, can be seen apparently dead and floating upside down with part of its indigestible last meal sticking out of its mouth.
It is unclear what species the small fish was, although some local media reports said that it was a parrot fish, but it appears to be coloured like a goldfish.
The owner of the fish, who has not been named, can be seen in the footage lifting the larger fish out of the water. He takes it to another room in place it next to a dustbin.
The man attempts to remove the smaller fish from the jaws of the larger fish but it appears to be firmly stuck.
The owner said that he had forgotten to feed his fish for two days, which is why the larger fish no doubt decided to eat the small fish.
