Little heron Butorides striatus catching a tilapia(?) @ SBG by Steven

haha I wonder if the little heron finally got the fish into itself. I suspect that the fish is a tilapia (an introduced food species) which is very aggressive both in behaviour and in terms of replacing many of the native fish species. I never thought that other than humans there are animals that feed on tilapias here in Singapore.
