Summary
  • Presents information about the arapaima, including physical characteristics, its everyday life, and its hunting abilities
  • In the Amazon River lives one of the largest freshwater fish on Earth--the arapaima. This huge river hunter can grow up to 10 feet long and weigh 400 pounds. In its watery home, the arapaima is an apex predator. It hunts for fish and birds, but none of its animal neighbors are large enough or powerful enough to catch this giant fish!
