Goodbye, My Giant Friends

While reading the paper this morning I got some really sad news. According to the Washington Post, two of the zoo's arapaimas, the largest freshwater fish in the world, have died and a third is sick. People always find it a little odd when they ask my what my favorite animal at the zoo is, and rather than the typical, panda or monkey or something, I say giant fish. I've been fascinated by them ever since my first visit to the zoo, and even though I haven't been to visit them in a while, I will miss them.
