Beware Ribbing in the Amazon

Have often read about those little fish that can swim up very small orifices and get stuck - apparently it's true!!!

Interesting photos!!!

at least all we have to worry about in British waters is getting cold!!!

Certainly is true.

IIRC, Lenny Henry added the story to his stand-up act some years ago, as part of his proof that there is no God, on the basis that no "God" would ever create such a fish
