Mekong Giant Catfish (Pangasianodon gigas)
is a enormous species of shark catfish native to the Mekong basin of Southeast Asia. While physically this species looks similar to other catfish the size that this animal can obtain is amazing with individuals recorded growing up to 10 feet long. Making them the largest freshwater fish alive today. Despite their amazing size this species is critically endangered with most of their native range dammed, and over fishing taking a toll on their population size.
