WORKER CAUGHT A GIANT TOMAN FISH IN CANAL BIGGER THAN HIS HEAD

A video emerged online showing a working catching a huge fish from inside a canal.

It is unclear where exactly the incident happened, although the catch was intriguing to say the least.

The fish, a huge Toman fish, was seen wiggling and flipping about as it laid on the ground beside the water body.

The worker then picked up the wiggling fish and loaded it into a plastic bag, visibly struggling to hold on to the heavy fish.

it is worth noting that the canal is pretty shallow as seen in the video, so it is a little puzzling to find a giant fish like that in the water.

Toman Fish

The Toman fish, also known as the Channa micropeltes, is one of the largest species and is also known as the giant snakehead or giant mudfish.

It is known to grow up to 1.5m long, which is about the height of a teenager or a really short adult.

As seen in the video, the Toman fish is able to crawl onto the land surface and breathe in the air, although the ability only works if they are in areas with a lot of mud or in swamps. (Hence the apt name).

They are more commonly found in the fresh waters of Southeast Asia, and are largely considered to be an invasive species as they have been found in many areas around the world.
