preserved tigerfish, one of the most noble and mighty of fish

there comes a time in everybody's life, in this one or the next maybe, when they spend $120 on a tiny little toothy fish. AND IT DIES. just kidding, wait no im not. casualty of "sending animals through the mail".

anyways, this came in on a kick ass import, and my only regret is not having more fish to jar.

c'est la vie!
which means "oh well dude shit happens stop ordering fish of the internet" but in some other language that's obviously not Engrish.

anyways, these monsters are found in many of the rivers and lakes in central-ish Africa. they get BIG, and kill things. my kind of fish, not too tooty-friuty. as you can see, even as tiny bastards they have some good sized teef on em. and now you can buy one, in a jar, in the name of science.

NOT FOR EATING. thinking about it, if i can cure them in rum, maybe they would be, but for now don't do it, for you own good, and mine. really. don't. stop thinking about it, just don't.

NOTE: ALL animals listed as preserved/taxidermy were NOT harmed or put down for the use of preservation. all animals died of natural causes (be it disease, age, and sometimes casualties of shipping) and/or were humanely euthanized due to medical reasons. US SALES ONLY.
