River Monster..

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh..

Spending most of the time at home, as expected, most of my time was spent to watch television.. 
One of the program i watched was titled, River Monster, hosted by Jeremy Wade. He is a biologist if I'm not mistaken and he is also an extreme angler. He travel around the world to search big fishes that their size  monster-like. I mean, huge and weird than normal. Let's swim around few pictures of these monsters.

1. Jeremy Wade holds a nearly 7-feet-long, 111-pound alligator gar with Mark Spitzer and guide Bubba Bedre.


2. Jeremy Wade with a 150-pound arapaima. 


3. Jeremy Wade holds a five-foot bull shark captured in Australia's Brisbane River. 


4. The freshwater sawfish has a long, blade-like snout called a rostrum. Lined with between 14 and 23 toothlike denticles, called rostral teeth, the rostrum is used primarily to catch prey.  


5. Jeremy Wade with a goliath tigerfish, a giant-sized relative of the piranha and one of the hardest freshwater fish in the world to hook and land. 


6. Jeremy Wade with a relatively small Kamba catfish. This fish is capable of growing to 5 feet and 300 pounds, or perhaps bigger. 


7. Jeremy's catch rivals the largest short- tailed river stingrays ever recorded. This fish typically grows to 4.9 feet in diameter and over 450 pounds in weight.


8. Jeremy Wade with a white sturgeon, the largest and most primitive freshwater fish in North America. The biggest white sturgeon on record stretched more than 20 feet in length and weighed almost 1,800 pounds.
