    "Oh, that's a nopefish. They can be found in the waters of the I'll Never Go There river, in Screwthatistan." Yup. And this is why I stay the hell out of the lake. But I really do love River Monsters.

    I enjoy River Monsters and Jeremy Wade, but every time I watch an episode, there is at least one moment when I end up yelling "Oh no... Oh HELL no! NO NO NO!!!!"


    Goliath Tigerfish - Locals in the Congo say it's the only fish that doesn't fear crocodiles, and will even devour some of the smaller ones! 32 teeth the size of a Great White Shark's, incredible eyesight in murky water and they can sense low-frequency vibrations emitted by prey...making this one dangerous predator. It's been observed going after 60 pound catfish and literally slicing them in half. RIVER MONSTERS ROCKS

    Goliath Tigerfish - Grows like goliath, hunts like a tiger and swims like a fish. The Goliath Tigerfish lurks the waters of the Congo River system and several other lakes in southern Africa. This fish is remarkably adept at swimming and killing due in part to an air-filled sac in its body that allows it to detect vibrations from animals in the water. River Monsters with Jeremy Wade
