It is usual for a crocodile to eat fishes, but a fish that can eat crocodiles? Now, that’s a really deadly fish!

All around the world, reports about human attacks by an unknown creature in Africa’s Congo river have flooded and Jeremy Wade, River Monster’s host, got really intrigue by it. As soon as he and his team were all set, they set out to visit the controversial Congo River in hopes of finding and catching the mythical creature.

When they got there, it took them over eight days to successfully capture the sea monster. And it is safe to say that the travel and waiting was worth it because what they caught was totally more than what they were expecting!

No one probably think that there’s a kind of fish more terrifying than a piranha. But believe it or not, there is.

Hydrocynus goliath, also known as the goliath tigerfish, giant tigerfish, or mbenga, has similar reputation like the piranhas but theirs are just larger and deadlier. According to locals, these fish have no fear on crocodiles that they can actually devour small ones – and, undoubtedly, also humans.
