As someone who used to own a betta (called Bela the Better Betta), I know that
air-breathing fishes can also migrate to deeper ponds when their own dries.
Perhaps the spinosaurs lurked behind bushes waiting to pounce on fish walking
Bela was kept in a tank with neons until I figured out why they were
disappearing.  The betta jaw is very flexible.  I put Bela in a separate tank,
went in the bedroom, and started to read.  Then I saw Bela walking by the
doorway on his way to the bathroom.  Maybe he was going to escape, or maybe
the neons just made him nauseous.
By the way, I don't want Bela confused with software being tested(beta), he
was definitely alpha.
