Anything More Than A Mouthful Is Excess

Sorry guys...I'm not referring to "them". What I am referring to is the big fish shown below that has more than its fair share of teeth. Get a gander at the choppers on this thing.
It is a Giant Tigerfish (aka Goliath Tigerfish, African Tigerfish). Tigerfish and piranha belong to the same family (Characidae) but are entirely different species, according to someone well versed in such things. I believe that it was caught in the Amazon. Photos forwarded to me by my friend, Ken Gauthier from up in Ontario Canada.

Wow what a FISH ! And your heading you men all think the same way! LOL it never changes, No matter how old you get to be. Your forever posing such nice stories I enjoy them so much and picture's too. How about something nice of you Rick and Veronica. We hear what a Catch she has, She is a Lucky Woman as am I. Was shocked to see how much we 4 have in common. It must be karma that we found each other blogging. You sound like a great Guy.
God bless you both .

Honestly, I wouldn't even try fishing if I came across one that had choppers like that. Amazing!

OMG, what a fish! Wow, what a set of teeth.
My question would be, is it good eating? Wonder how many steaks you could get from that one fish. Yes, I see fish, I see dinner.lol
