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.
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.
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.
Thanx Nate, I ahve seen freeze dried before.. It looks goos but just not what I am looking for. I am personal with the head of the Taxidermist of Canada.. Should get a good deal from him.. I will see how it goes.
Pygos are in a 230 gall.. and soon to be upgraded, they are looking fairly crowded in it.
