A surly fish

The silver arowana looks surly. This is because its mouth is turned upward. But it is a smart fish because it catches its prey at the water's surface.

Spot the difference

The Asian arowana can be recognized by the clearly marked scales and orange color that distinguishes it from its South American competitors. We have only one of them. Can you see which one it is?
