Trophic Strategy

provided by Fishbase
During the day preys on small fishes and shrimps close to water surface, approaching potential prey stealthily within lunging range, but when disturbed, may leap and skitter at the surface. At night, young individuals rest close to the surface, aligned with semi-submersed leaves of marsh grass in mangroves, and when disturbed, usually sinks slowly and hides within vegetation. The resemblance to grass blades and its night-time behavior are believed to be defensive adaptations against nocturnal visually oriented predators like night herons (Ref. 40403).

Biology

provided by Fishbase
Adults found on reef flats, in lagoons, or in freshwater (Ref. 9710). Juveniles found among floating algae (Ref. 9710). Feeds mainly on small fishes (Ref. 3129). Oviparous (Ref. 205). Eggs may be found attached to objects in the water by tendrils on the egg's surface (Ref. 205). During the day preys on small fishes and shrimps close to water surface, approaching potential prey stealthily within lunging range, but when disturbed, may leap and skitter at the surface.

Strongylura timucu ( Portuguese )

provided by wikipedia PT

Strongylura timucu (Walb.), conhecido popularmente como peixe-agulha, agulha, acarapindá, carapiá, petimbuaba, timicu e timucu, é um peixe teleósteo da família Belonidae. Ocorre da Flórida ao litoral brasileiro. Tem um corpo alongado, daí o nome "agulha". A cabeça representa um terço do comprimento total do corpo, que varia entre sessenta centímetros e um metro, no indivíduo adulto. Costuma ser bastante pescado, embora sua carne seja considerada de qualidade inferior[2].

Etimologia

"Acarapindá" provém da língua tupi[3]. "Carapiá" procede do tupi karapi'á, que significa "pedaço"[2]. "Petimbuaba" procede do tupi petimbu'ab, que significa "cachimbo"[4]. (também uma alusão ao seu formato alongado). "Timicu" e "timucu" procedem do tupi timbu'ku, que significa "nariz" (tim) "comprido" (puku)[5].
