Posted on Jun 16, 2016
Hunters and fishermen are famous for being very passionate about their hobby. This guy is not any different, as he went into the rainforests to seek a new challenge. Check out what he found!
1. The Amazon Myth
There are tons of weird animals living in the Amazon rainforests, including those which are yet to be discovered. This guy heard a rumor about a giant fish that inhabits the river, so he took a trip all the way out there to find out if the story was true.
2. Arapaima Fish
The fish he was looking for is called Arapaima, and its natural habitat is the Amazon. Arapaimas are very large freshwater species; they can be up to 10 feet long!
3. The Natives Have Seen It Before
The locals told the fisherman that they've seen some Arapaimas before, mainly because they can't breathe underwater, so they have to come to the surface to grab some air.
4. Testing the Myth
It's now up to this man to be smart and patient. He must be in the right place to spot the legendary fish and strong enough to withstand the challenge.
