#Tb Giraffe Catfish or African Giraffe Bagrid. Scientifically known as Auchenoglanis occidentalis. It has a reticulated patternation across the body which is creamy yellow in base colour and dark brown on top, resembling the markings of a Giraffe giving this fish it's common name. Besides it’s beautiful markings, this fella’s have extremely sharp barbs which left me & my mate with severe thin cuts prior to this pic taken with gloves on during our 2013 expedition. This giraffe’s can grow up to 90cm and predominantly found in the Congo River, Nile lake & East Africa Omo and Giuba River System.
Time for a reunion with this Giraffe’s. “Vis Aan(African)” #SurfacezeroTeam #FishOn #7SeasProShop #GuruRakha #Congo
