Apr 4 2007Don't swim in the Congo River

congo-fish-teeth-01.jpg

Holy mother of crap. I'm pretty sure they pulled this fish straight out of my nightmares. If you ever feel like going for a swim in the Congo River make sure you bring along a gun. Or a, uh, bazooka. This thing looks like it could eat a bear.

A few more pictures of this monster after the jump.

Researching my book `Blood River - A Journey To Africa's Broken Heart' I came across many specimens of the Goliath Tigerfish on the Congo River. Indeed, I spent a happy but unsuccesful day trying to catch one on rod and line.

I had a look at some specimens caught by local fishermen in their nets (the fish drown) way up river, near Kisangani, about 1,400 miles from the Atlantic. As your photographs indicate, they are excellent predators, with an awesome array of teeth. Local fishermen told me they have seen specimens up to 60 kg in weight.

And another thing. They taste great, lightly grilled in palm oil and salt.

Check out my book by going to the website. Leave a message on my blog if you want more pictures of the monster.
