The next time you're diving in your third world eco paradise stream or

lake, just remember, your place in the food chain may get re-shuffled. I

bet things like this reduce the urge to go skinny dipping.--lol

Has anyone even heard of Piranha this big?

That is not something I would want to be face to face with in the water.:scared:

OK-Osprey has shown us this is an African Tiger Fish. Thanks for making me look stupid--(just kidding).
Now, the question is, how many of you would think about swimming with one of these bad boys?

No thank you...I like the little fish with bright colors. ;)

I have dove places where the fish like to nibble on your ears, I hope these would not be as up close and personal.

I wouldn't want to spear him and put him on a stringer...

Spearing him might just make him angry. That is one vicious looking fish. I couldn't imgine coming face to face with him in the water. Try to keep your cool then?

As much as the piranha sunfish at Terrell love me, I'm thinking swimming around these guys would not be a good idea......:smiley11:

i wouldnt mind if they are as smart as snakes
snakes dont kill things they cant eat,

soo
it might not try to bite you

then again
its not like a snake
and doesnt have to eat its food whole....
i think i changed my mind
:P

ok lets look at this thing in a technical way, shall we? Lets see, would you rather see a bull shark instead? or how about great O'll whity? AHUUUUUU I'll take that fish on with those odds. Look at the teeth, size of mouth. yeh getting bitten by one of those would put some nice holes in yah. but getting it from a great white will rip yah. If I'm gonna get bit I'd rather it be from a fish that has teeth designed to grasp as oposed to saw a rip. besides an eal has longer teeth than those and once thy grab you they don't let go since thier teeth are pointed back towards its throat. Still its a mean looking fish and as someone else said here I too like the nice little colorful nemos :)
