It's just a catfish!

Dad sent this to me via email:



Each year, a few people will be drowned mysteriously in Huadu's Furong Reservoir. It was not until recently when the son of a certain official went swimming in the reservoir with his friend and were drowned that the secret was unravelled!

It's a 3 metre long man-eating catfish whose head alone is 1 metre wide! After cutting up the catfish people were surprised to find the remains of a man inside!

Because this was a huge incident, and the local government was afraid of the impact on local tourism, they imposed an embargo on the news, but people came away with these pictur es taken on their cell phones of the man-eating fish!

Swimming in the reservoir is now forbidden because it is feared another similar man-eating catfish is still lurking in the waters.

Most of the images can be found online on urban legend type websites...so maybe the man-eating part is a bit...fishy, but still that's one HUGE catfish!

This is exactly why I hate the ocean. It's filled with things we haven't even discovered yet. If they were little sea-insects we hadn't discovered then that would be fine - but it's these huge things that we know exist...but have never got a glimpse of, like the giant squid! Creepy!

It look more like a whale shark to me.
