Fish versus terrapin – who’s your money on?

Fish v turtle fight

FIGHTING out of the red corner, from Lake Tanganyika on the border of Zambia, Congo, Burundi and Tanzania, weighing in a 15 pounds… “THE TERRAPIN”.

FIGHTING out of the blue corner, from another part of the lake, a couple of puny little fish from the cychlid family (the same family as the better known ‘Peacock bass‘).

Who is going to win this mis-match – the snapping terrapin or the fish, whose teeth could never puncture the terrapin’s tough skin? They’ve got some killer moves and you might be surprised…
