Great presentation by the Scottish Daily Mail yesterday on the tale of Bath angler, Jeremy Wade, who reeled in a 5ft goliath tigerfish on Africa’s Congo River.
His 100 lb prehistoric-looking catch is a fiercesome fish with 32 teeth – similar in size and sharpness to those of a great white shark.
Wade said: “It is, for all intents and puposes, a giant piranha. It is quite a beast. It has an extremely powerful bite and has been known to consume prey the same size as itself, attack people and takes pieces out of crocodiles.”
And the Scottish Daily Mail’s heading? ‘Jurassic carp!’
