Seymour explains that bananafish have a tendency to swim into holes filled with bananas. While perfectly normal fish before entering the holes, once inside the bananafish become ravenous and devour all the bananas they can spot. The result: they grow too fat to escape from the hole. “They lead a very tragic life,” Seymour says.
