These images look like bad Photoshop jobs. What fish, after all, has such hellish fangs? Meet the Goliath Tiger Fish. This monster lives in remote stretches of the African Congo and can weigh over 100 pounds.

I wondered what prey warrants this type of evolutionary over-compensation. Not surprisingly, it literally eats anything that moves: other fish, large herd animals, humans, other tiger fish…you name it.

Wikipedia states this apex predator “has a gas-filled sac in its body… that detects vibrations in open water…and will often attack the source of the vibrations.”

I feel sorry for the African children who live on the shores that border tiger fish territory.  Each day they must decide between enduring the heat or swimming with this dreadful beast. And, imagine the men’s fear each time their wives tell them to go catch dinner.
