What the Heck Is This!

  1. They are calling this a striper. I don't think so. Is it? Are those teeth real or photoshop?

    African Tiger Fish, almost as mean as a pink Easter Bunny!
     
  4. I am just glad my little bunny don't have teeth like that!. Glen do the tiger fish really have teeth like that?

    And, if I'm not mistaken that's a really BIG A.T.F. too!!! (although those camera angles tend to make it look even bigger)...

    ppark728 I love fish!

    It might be a goliath tigerfish (a close relative of the African tigerfish), which differ in that they are more gold in color, stripes are rare, and they reach guargantuan sizes. See pic that I snatched off google.

    Darrell, there's lots of fish with proportionately big teeth, it's just that no body pays any attention to them until they get bigger than their own.

    On another note. You do realize that the photo of your Easter Bunny has became a taxidermy.net treasure, don't you? That means you will have to keep it in your signature line for forever. I laugh every time I see it.

    I.e. if a smelt was bigger it would rival this tiger fish!

    Glen thanks for calling with the concern about the liver test. I was out of state and have been busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest -- which is the way it should be.

    And yes that picture of the bunny girl is priceless. I emailed it to my wife and she got a kick out of it too.
     
  10. Thanks everyone for the compliments on my little bunny. There are plenty of pictures of her pissed off. I will rotate them out.

    Tiger fish by all means. I wouldn't go swimming in those waters. There is a similar fish from south america, I can't think of the name but I am thinking Arawana but I may be wrong. I don't get any exotic fish like those.
     
  13. peter, that google picture was definetally photo shopped. The fish in the picture has to go a couple hundred pounds unless the guy holding it is a midget. his left hand balancing it does not even show any signs of strain. He looks like a little guy, and is holding it all up with his left hand? LOL

    Tom, I agree. Unless the fish is a skateboard (which it doesn't appear to be too stiff), it should also be hanging down more, not out towards the camera (That gravity thing ya know - lol!) Definite PhotoShop deal here!!!
