Man Eater Fish




I was watching the show River Monster at Discovery Channel last night and I was quite disturbed by the picture they show of a Catfish called "Piraiba" who ate a full- grown fisherman. Piraiba is the largest catfish in the Amazon River and known to be a man eater. The maximum weight of a Piraiba can reached up to 500 pounds and its length is up to 9 and 1/2 feet. They are known for biting off more than it can actually chew or swallow.

You can see the host of River Monster Jeremy Wade holding a fresh caught Piraiba of the Amazon River.
