Catfish that catch birds on the beach

Called freshwater killer whales, huge catfish have learned to catch and eat birds.  In southwestern France, pigeons bathing on beaches are in for a nasty surprise.  Big catfish lurking just offshore, waiting for a bird to go just a bit too far into the water.

This is reminiscent of killer whales lunging onto beaches in Patagonia to catch sea lions.

Check out this amazing video to see the catfish in action.
