F is for Featherfin Catfish

The Featherfin Catfish can be found in the African rivers such as the White Nile. They’re bottom-feeders and they’re nicknamed the squeaker because of their ability to “talk” to each other with squeaks. Sounds pretty cute to me! Except that they’re super territorial and they’ll probably eat your face if you’re close to it… or its babies or something. Okay, maybe not since their diet is mostly vegetarian with a few salvaged meaty bits and they’re only like 7 inches long. But the chances are that you won’t run into this noisy fish, since it’s also nocturnal. Looks like everything is in your favor.

I wonder if they’re delicious. Mmmmm catfish…
