The Terrifying Goliath Tigerfish


The Goliath tigerfish is a predator with large teeth which is found in Africa. British angler Jeremy Wade looks understandably anxious as he grapples with this ferocious-looking 'giant piranha'. He caught the fish during a fishing expedition up the Congo River in Africa.

The brave fisherman was forced to hold the Goliath tigerfish at arms-length for fear of being bitten by its razor-sharp teeth while posing with it for the camera.

You see? That's what happens when you release your goldfish into the lake...

Its eyes are all grey and I think he's holding its mouth open through the gills there. Looks like it's pretty dead to me!
