I sincerely hope this doesn't devolve into some kind of science vs religion debate and get shut down, I just thought this was pretty cool... Catfish hunting pigeons on land:


It's usually species like Largemouth Bass that you think of as being that agressive.

Catfish will eat anything given the chance. I dont actually see them take one under though. Cool video though.

I would love to fish for those beasts.

The first fish to try his/her luck out of water was probably trying to avoid becoming lunch.

We have a fish called the Qld Groper (Epinephelus Ianceolatus), which just hangs around deep water holes & eat absolutely anything that swims past which it can fit into it's expandable mouth. Big ones have been known to take adult humans!

Just one more reason not to go swimming in Australia.

The guy next to the fish scares me.
