Swimming and turning behaviors of larval zebrafish have been described kinematically, but prey capture behaviors are less well characterized. High-speed digital imaging was used to record the axial kinematics of larval zebrafish as they preyed upon paramecia and also during other types of swimming. In all types of swim bouts, a series of traveling waves of bending is observed and these bends propagate along the trunk in the rostral to caudal direction. The prey capture swim bouts appeared to be… CONTINUE READING
