European catfish are the largest catfish in all of Europe, growing up to 1.5 meters in length! That, however, was not what got so many French fisherman video taping them. What sparked fishermen's curiosity is the fact that these catfish are often seen swimming eerily close to the shore, then, jumping out and attacking unsuspecting pigeons.
The European catfish often purposely fling themselves onto the shore in order to lure pigeons close to them. When the pigeon gets close, the catfish flops up and attacks the pigeon trapping it inside of it's mouth before dragging it back into it's freshwater home to have a feast!
