Many years ago I bought some chopped-up fish (plump, fresh-looking, and on special offer too) at Asda, labelled ''conger''. There was no mention of ''eel'' and for some reason I did not make the connection right away. My little lad did, as we were walking away from the checkout. He screamed like a girl and made me take it straight back! I did, I ran, aghast. LMAO :pmsl: :pmsl:


Congers are some of our most impressive predators.

You would have to cook a shitload of chips to go with some of the largest! :mrgreen:

Superfrogs.

Calyptocephalellidae sp. (The giant Magellanic frog). It lived around 40 million years ago from the middle to upper Eocene in Chilean Patagonia, South America.

The Cretaceous Beelzebufo (a great name) is often stated on the web to be the largest frog of all time - it was not however.

Neither do corvids, parrots, monitor lizards, cephalopods or Portia. :thumbsup:

On that topic we are discovering that the size of the brain or Encephalization quotient is not as important as most people think - it's the connections and the density of neurons that counts even for the smallest of creatures.
