Tiger Shovelnose X RTC


What do you make of this? Is it actually a cross or are they making things up for a sale? I must admit it does look kinda like something in between the two.

When will humans stop trying to play god and creating such creatures when there are so many beautiful, interesting and moreover natural species already available?

It does look like a hybrid. There are plenty of reports of both catfish crossing with each other.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

not an uncommon hybrid nowadays, they are both Pimelodidae

certainly more common when compared to the amount of people that can house it!

taken from planetcatfish

''Aquaculture has also given us hybrids of Red tails and Tiger Shovelnose (Pseudoplatystoma sp.)''

there's a storm a coming........
