Scaly, ugly and more than a little snake-like in appearance and demeanor, the reptilian looking Arapaima of the Amazon basin and Essequibo basin, South America is a predator of other fish and sometimes birds. Seizing prey both underwater and from the surface, the Arapaima is an inhabitant of river waters and adjacent swamps and forested backwaters.
