Thanx guys.

some nice ass 11 inch pygos
The smaller one was 12" measured by Oliver Lucanus when it came in 4 years ago. The larger one was measured at just under 15" when Oliver got that one in as well. Since you brought it up BdKing.


The shrink quite a bit when frozen.

Yes i definately believe that they were some monster because i have seen your pictures of them before when they were alive, but are you using standard length or tail length measurements. They are the biggest cariba i have ever seen either way.

No, the smaller Piraya died the morning after I put him in the tank. The Rhom yes, there are pics up already.

BD,

Only the smaller Piraya and the Rhom were mine. The rest were given to my by a few different importers for me to have mounted. The smaller and larger Piraya were measured by Oliver Lucanus. I only had the smaller Piraya alive for one night and froze him before I measured him.
Although I am sure he use TL.

The PYGO pics I put up are still alive and well. There are no Caribe in the freezer.


Thanx though.

One day I will take the Caribe out and do actual measurements with pics for record. I am VERY nervous about it though, I lost that one smaller Piraya so easily and I am sh*t scared of loosing the others to something so stupid. one day I will though. I have heard Oliver say that these were the largest Caribe he has heard of in North America. We will have to see.
