Inquiries, Requests, and a Place to Spill Your GutsSubmissions I am Ashley. This is my personal blog. If you want just marine biology, go here. I love the world; I really don't like people. I balance all this animosity towards the human race with being an almost always kind and gentle being to all creatures. I'm highly introverted and nature is my primary escape from people. Creepy-crawly-slimy things are my favorites. Dinosaurs are fantastic. Future marine biologist; presently an amateur entomologist, ichthyologist, artist, biologist, and writer. Literature, video game, and music connoisseur. I'm so full of passion for the world that it hurts. I think a lot, I laugh a lot, I love a lot. Almost none of the photos are mine and only some of the drawings are mine. Listen in.
The Goliath Tigerfish (Hydrocynus goliath) is a member of the African tetra family, Alestidae. Being the biggest member of this family, it can grow to reach around 1.4m long. A native of the Congo River basin, the Lualaba River, Lake Upemba and Lake Tanganyika in Africa, it’s the largest member of the tigerfish clan, a genus of fierce predators with protruding, daggerlike teeth. Locals say it’s the only fish that doesn’t fear the crocodile and that it actually eats smaller ones.
