Worlds Largest Sting-ray Fish!!!

The giant stingray, weighing an estimated 550 to 990 pounds (250 to 450 kilograms) was reeled in on January 28, 2009, as part of a National Geographic expedition in Thailand. The stingray’s body measured 6.6 feet (2 meters) wide by 6.9 feet (2.1) meters long. The tail was missing. If it had been there, the ray’s total length would have been between 14.8 and 16.4 feet (4.5 and 5 meters), estimated University of Nevada Biologist Zeb Hogan.
Recreational fishers caught this giant freshwater stingray in the Bang Pakong River in Chachoengsao, Thailand, right before it gave birth on March 31, 2008.
The massive fish, which by some accounts can grow up to 20 feet (6 meters) long, are flourishing in parts of Thailand, but overfishing in Cambodia remains a serious threat.
