Giant Catfish

Sharks aren’t the only aquatic predator with a taste for human flesh. All over the world there have been horrific tales of giant catfish swallowing children whole and devouring adult men foolish enough to disturb their murky underwater sanctums—with accounts pouring in even today. Its not their fault, though, as catfish, by nature, are voracious eaters, demonstrating a willingness to eat anything and everything that even slightly resembles tasty vittles. On second thought, are giant catfish ravenous or just I-choked-on-a-soccer-ball-because-I-thought-it-was-food stupid? That’s a true story, by the way.
