BIG Catfish

There was an exhibit at the Flint River Aquarium on catfish. They were sharing information about catfish around the world. The smallest fish known is a catfish, as is the largest fish, at 17 feet long. The mascot of the exhibit was huge. Several adults could fit inside and see the diagrams on the walls showing the internal organs of the fish.



This gives you a better idea of its size.

catfish This beauty was in a live tank. Its underbelly was a beautiful lemon yellow. I don't remember in what part of the world it lives.


And what is a catfish exhibit without a noodling activity??  You know where you go after a very large catfish with your HAND in its mouth!


You might notice I said "you",  not "I".
