Found this male and some females in the shallow stream running through the woods.
Introduced of course.Several large individuals seen around cattail clumps, ~7" total length or less.
I have been visiting this site periodically for 25 years and had never seen this taxon there, but a friend reported that he'd seen them back in the early 1990s.
The awful invasive kind
This leviathan must have been two ft. long. Must be eradicated for restoration of ML.
Worth good money on ornamental fish market no doubt...
Mwalalo River, Matema, Southern Tanzania
Unsure if this is a smallmouth buffalo or black buffalo. It might be impossible to tell with a smaller fish like this.
