Beware: New Apex Predator Could Soon Take Over Alabama Rivers
True River Monster Ahead.
This is terrible news for those like me, who have an unnatural fear of getting eaten up by something in the water.
The beach isn't even enjoyable since the gators started showing up in the shallows.
It seems like all these nasty creatures are making their way to our Alabama waterways. Take a wild guess where they are coming from.
Look at this monster that recently made its way into our Alabama River.
Then we had the Pacu. These fish are affectionately known as the nutcracker. It's known to eat flesh and attack male private parts. Thus the nickname.
If that doesn't keep you out of the water, this might.
The Arapaima is a big, athletic fish. Like tarpon, Arapaima is capable of jumping out of the water for food.
The Arapaima will eat small mammals, lizards, birds, and other fish.
Yes, fido could be on the dinner table.
The Arapaima can grow up to 10 feet long and weigh hundreds of pounds. It is also one largest predatory fish. Its scales are like armor.
The Arapaima also produces hundreds of thousands of eggs during its lifetime.
One good thing is, people, have also figured out a way to cook it like we do everything else.
I guess you gotta try everything once.
At this point, I just may have to stick to the swimming pool.
