This man seems to have mastered the art of hand-feeding fish (if that’s a thing). He achieves this by attaching a food delicacy to a string, which he drops into the water and keeps pulling the delicacy until—voilà!—The fish love this treat so much they’ll hop onto land, and even let him pet them.
These fish are probably not bottom-feeders, but the kind who look out for insects on top of the water’s surface.
Here’s a fish-feeding party where one can actually pet the fish:
In this video, this girl has no problem getting a chance to pet these ravenous goldfish. They’re literally piling up to get at the food she’s got for them!
