The Half-Ton Giant Freshwater Stingray

6 posts in this topic

Though this could be the largest freshwater fish on the planet, accounts of its existence only emerged in Thai newspapers in the early 1980s. It’s exceedingly rare to see one, in part because it destroys all but the strongest fishing rods and lines.

Even if you have the right equipment, the giant freshwater stingray tends to take exception to being hunted and buries itself in the river bottom when hooked.

Very cool creatures. Giant pancake or mushroom cap (with eyes and a spine and a tail :P ).

Amazing looking skeletal x-ray:
