That is one big fish and I wouldn't want to get the hook out of it's mouth. The Chinese record of 3300 pound makes their catch approx four times heavier and I assume about three times bigger. Frightening. I just upgraded the stingray to number three in my list of things to avoid, just behind King Cobras and ladyboys.

Samut Songkhram? One of the two must be wrong. Most probably it is due a small mistake in translation, as the river in Samut Songkhram is the Mae Klong (???????), and the Mekong in Thai is Mae Khong (??????).

My girls brother is in the Mekong all the time netting fish...I can't imagine that thing would be friendly if you stepped on it. Yep we have fisherman's tales too ...but the the best I've ever come up with is " you should see the one that got away". That really is scary when you think about it.

I didn't know such monsters lurked in the Mekong! Some "fisherman's tale," not sure you use that idiom in the States but it refers to a tall/unbelievable story in the UK.
