Lurking in the murky depths of the world's great waterways are bizarre giants - specimens of such enormous proportions and odd appearance they boggle the mind. Remarkable freshwater fish that can reach astonishing lengths of 3.5 metres, weigh a scale-busting 200 kilograms and carry heavy suits of scaly armour.
