Barracudas were a type of carnivorous fish that inhabited warm salt water.[3]

Behavior[]

Barracudas typically did not attack humanoid creatures. However, they occasionally would attack humanoids carrying shiny objects, out of a mistaken belief that said object was a small fish they could prey upon.[1] They could be very aggressive and vicious.[4]

Combat[]

Barracudas were lightning-quick predators, attacking any prey that was injured or appeared helpless.[3] Occasionally they would use their speed to launch themselves out of the water and bite at creatures on a boat.[5]

Ecology[]

Habitats[]

Beyond Faerûn, barracudas could be found in bodies of salt water in Zakhara.[6]

Outside of the Prime Material plane, barracudas could be found in the domain of Draga Salt-Biter in the Domains of Dread.[7]

Relationships[]

And some sea mages were known to keep them as familiars.[4]
