Anhinga dive to catch fish, then swallow them head first. Almost any reasonably sized fish will do.

And based on how wide she opened her mouth here I can see how those big fish disappear.

A few moments ago I returned from photographing some Anhinga catching fish in a marsh. With luck there should be a few new examples of just how they deal with large fish.

It’s amazing to see this bird with a mouth open this much.

Never dull out there.
