Goliath Tiger Fish (Video Included)

AFTER an eight-day monster battle a British fisherman has caught one of the world’s most fearsome freshwater fish.

Angler Jeremy Wade wrestled the 5ft-long goliath tigerfish during a fishing expedition along the Congo River in Africa.

The tigerfish – believed to be a deadlier version of the piranha – has 32 teeth that are a similar size to those of a great white shark and has been known to attack humans and even crocodiles, the UK’s Daily Mail reports.

Mr Wade reeled in the 45kg beast as part of aTV show about mythical reports from around the world of humans being attacked by unknown monsters from the deep.

“’It is very rare to catch one, especially by an outsider because they are found in such a remote and difficult location to get to,” Mr Wade said on the show River Monsters.

I would hate to come across this fish if you were out swimming. Just look at those teeth.

      Hi travelrat,
      Unfortunately we don’t get the show in Australia, but it sounds like it would be a great show, he has a couple of video’s on You Tube, and what I’ve seen it does look O.K.
