Beneath the blue waters of Lake Tahoe, California, lurks a new kind of sea monster: gigantic goldfish! While looking for invasive fish species, researchers from the University of Nevada, Reno, discovered a goldfish that is nearly 1.5 feet long and weighs 4.2 lb.

Thanks, Ben! In 52 years, no one has actually publicly disbelieved that that was my name! I make this blanket statement anytime I see people with a big grin on their face holding a fish up in the air. You can buy a license to torture fish for sport, but dragging other animals out of their home on a hook is cruel and inhuman. Fish aren't particularly cuddly (except for Disney), so no one much cares. I just find the difference in perception amusing. Sorry to "make trouble" over the abuse of an entire species.
