I’m trying to identify a fish I once saw when I was little boy in my favorite encyclopedia volume. Unfortunately I don’t recall what letter it was for I also don’t remeber that much about the fish except that it was stunning in it’s size. It looked like a gold fish, only pale white and stubbier, and huge!
In the picture there was a man swimming next to it and the fish was so large, I imagined it could have easily bitten off his head, or perhaps even swallow the man whole. I also recall that the lips were very pouty and human like. There might or might have not been a reference to Africa.
Does anyone have any clue as to what I might be talking about?
