The world's most bizarre-looking and frightening freshwater monsters of the deep

Jaw-dropping: The Goliath Tiger Fish, known by its Latin name Hydrocynus goliath was found in the Congo River. The biggest Tiger Fish on record was nearly 5ft long and weighed 154lbs, the equivalent of a super-welterweight prizefighter


Some are the size of a horse, some can paralyse you with a 500-volt electric shock and some are said to have developed a taste for testicles.
Beneath the still waters of the world's rivers lie a wealth of sharp-toothed, slithery and terrifying-looking creatures which send shivers down the spines of the locals who regale gruesome stories about their unpleasant underwater neighbours.
But intrepid British filmmaker Jeremy Wade has ignored conventional wisdom to track down the world's most frightening freshwater fish to find out just how scary they really are.

To the point: Intrepid explorer Jeremy Wade with a Payara fish. The animal is known as the Dog Tooth Characin or the Vampire Fish, due to its protruding front dentures
