    This was just sent to me from a friend of mine.
    Be careful, very careful.:big_smile:



    For all those crazy guys who go 'noodling' for catfish and stick their arms down the fish's throat!! This would really be 'all the catfish you can eat.'
    Each year, a few people will be drowned mysteriously in Huadu's Furong Reservoir. It was not until recently when the son of a certain official went swimming in the reservoir with his friend and were drowned that the secret was unravelled!
    It's a 3 metre long man-eating catfish whose head alone is 1 metre wide! After cutting up the catfish people were surprised to find the remains of a man inside!
    Because this was a huge incident, and the local government was afraid of the impact on local tourism, they imposed an embargo on the news, but people came away with these pictures taken on their cell phones of the man-eating fish!
    Swimming in the reservoir is now forbidden because it is feared another similar man-eating catfish is still lurking in the waters

    yep, definayely a whale shark, and they get really big!!! that is a magnificent creature. 2 guys from work were fishing about 50 miles off shore @ the gulf coast & saw one. he came all the way up to the boat & one of these guys was petting his head while sitting on the motor. He has a 24ft el pescador boat, and when the fish went to leave, his head was past the bow & tail was still coming around the back of the boat!!!!!
