Hitting the water at speeds around 88 kilometres per hour (55 miles per hour), gannets can dive “like torpedoes hitting the water,” before they swim around underwater to catch fish. This stunning footage from PBS Nature’s Wild Way of the Vikings, narrated by Ewan McGregor, captures the gannets’ diving and hunting capabilities.
