Giant Goldfish Found in Lake Tahoe
Just imagine the size of the goldfish bowl you’d need for this. In the depths of Lake Tahoe, some researchers scooped-up a monster goldfish that measures over a foot-and-a-half long, and weighs over 4 pounds.
They were trawling the lake for invasive species when they came across the “Jaws” of goldfish. They found other goldfish as well, but none the size of this one. The researchers say they were probably “dumped” in the lake by aquarium owners.
The problem is, goldfish and other species that are introduced into the lake could damage the ecosystem and eventually muddy the now clear waters of Lake Tahoe. But meanwhile the goldfish continue to thrive, and “jaws” is the biggest one ever found. The previous record goldfish measured 15 inches and weighed in at 2 pounds.
