EARTH A New Wild | Clip | S1 E5: Wonderful Cichlids: Playing Dead

Lake Malawi has an incredible 850 endemic species of fish found nowhere else on earth, almost all of them some kind of Cichlid. Cichlids have evolved into thousands of different species far quicker than it took apes to evolve into just three species. This fish plays dead in order to attract other fish then eats the fish who come and investigate. Video courtesy of Jay Stauffer.
