If you think that catfish (IKAN KELI) can't grow that big.. this is the reason why one should not rear them commercially as occasionally in heavy downpours, a few get away and grew to be big. In this case, my nephew caught one in the local river (longkang for some) which literally looked like a huge snake.
See those smaller ones which are the 'normal size' in the bucket? That is the wild catfish whereas this 3.5kg giant even dwafs my feet. That is the African Cat Fish and boy this was a big one, and the meat was chewy...took me a while to grill it.
Yes, I eat CATFISH!
MEOW! And even the cats are so scared of it ..that they ran away!
