    I love the JAWS movies as well. I have, also, thought Catfish and Sharks have a lot in common. More than both being fishes. I saw a picture once of a man carrying a catfish on his back. He was in the jungle somewhere. But, the catfish had a very shark like tail and body with a big catfish head. The catfish was about 6 feet long. and greyish colored.
    The Great White is my favorite shark. I have one tattooed on my shoulder.

    I believe the cat your tlaking about comes from the Amazon. I forget the name but I saw a video of catfishing on the Amazon and they were catching a cat that sounds like your describing. Even the host made comments that the fish looks shark like.

    Jaws is a good flick! Don't believe that sharks and catfish are related though!

    I caught a 8.14lb blue sat. night on the hocking river (creek), sat. night. Bit me 3 times before my son could snap a picture of it. Ive caught some good size cats, but pound for pound i think this was the meanest one I have ever landed. Maybe the cat from HELL.lol:cool2:

    Catfish are the freshwater shark!!

    I love Jaws and I even bought the box set when it came out. I always rattle off a few lines from the movie while I am on the boat.

    I for one have never read anything on the relation between sharks or catfish, but believe they are relatively closley related.

    1. Catfish use electroreception to locate food, much like sharks. What this means is, the can actually see the electricity in a living organism. Few fish can do this.

    2. There body structures are similar. Same basic fin structure, and no scales.

    3. A lot of home aquarium sharks like exactly like catfish without wiskers.

    4. Both are great predators, with the exception of a few species in both categories.

    Proof enough?

    Josh brings up a good point about aquarium "sharks".

    Can someone who is well versed aquarium fish please let us know if those fish they sell in pet stores are really sharks? They look like dang catfish to me!

    When that ole flathead gets any size on him he just lays around waiting for something that will fit in his big ole mouth. He is the ultimate freshwater predator! grizzly
