Description

Asian arowana. Seen in a fresh water pond in a public park. Lots of koi there but this fellow really stood out. Sorry about the bad pics only had an iphone. It was much more recognizable in person without all the glare. Not sure on the variety as there seam to be a few types of Asian arowana. probably a dumped pet.

Description from Wikipedia

Osteoglossiformes (Gk. "bony tongues") is a relatively primitive order of ray-finned fish that contains two sub-orders, the Osteoglossoidei and the Notopteroidei. All of the living species inhabit freshwater. They are found in South America, Africa, Australia and southern Asia, having first evolved in Gondwana before that continent broke up.

No range data available.
