1. Redtail Catfish (Phractocephalus hemioliopterus) / Tiger Shovelnose Catfish (Phseudoplatystoma Faciatium) – I’d say easily the most popular Monster fish for Aquariums. These guys both get huge, over 4′ and 100lbs. The Hybrids also get just as large, often called RTC/TSN Hybrid. Make no mistake, the hybrids are all man made not wild caught. There are numerous Tiger Shovelnose species that have varying patterns. Some of those may be called Hybrids by mistake. Unless you’ve got a pond leave these guys alone, try a smaller species. There are plenty of them such as Raphael catfish and Pictus Catfish.
It is not widely publicized but organized crime has a presence at most major airports in the USA! (not to mention around the world) The degree of illegal activity is much more wide spread in less developed countries. Ironically, these countries often have much more severe penalty for things like drug trafficking and smuggling. Even with straps around your zippered luggage, the "bad guys" can still open any zippered luggage and remove your valuables or put contraband inside. There are many stories about innocent people going to prison (and worse) for someone else's crime. Don't be a victim, buy hardsided, non-zippered luggage!
