In a heartwarming story of survival, two goldfish survived 4 months without food after an earthquake.
The two fish were left trapped in their tank in the downtown area of Christchurch in New Zealand for 134 days before they were found and rescued. "It's certainly an incredible story. I wouldn't have guessed that fish could survive on their own for four months," said aquarium curator Paul Clarkson.
The fish, named Shaggy and Daphne after characters from the animated television show Scooby Doo, spent four and a half months - 134 days - trapped in their tank in the city's off-limits downtown without anyone to feed them or even any electricity to power their tank filter before they were discovered this month and rescued.
