Arapaima in the Caloosahatchee River

Recommended Posts

What can grow up to 10 feet long, weigh 200 pounds and is armored like a tank? The Amazonian river monster, the Arapaima. 

You might have heard of it on the Discovery Channel show “River Monsters.”

So what does a monster fish that lives half a world away have to do with Florida? The Arapaima could actually be closer than you think. 

Over the weekend, a woman walking through Cape Coral’s Jaycee Park came across an enormous dead fish that puzzled her.

What is it with Florida? Pythons, iguanas now arapimas? I think they can be eaten, but not sure how tasty they are.

Half a world away.  2400 miles is all that separates Florida from the Amazon river.   Hardly 
"half a world" away.   

Florida has the terrain and weather to make it an easy fit for invasive species.  Gotta be a constant battle down there.
