The Amazon is home to many monsters. Whether they live along the shore or swim through the waters of this immense river, they’re imposing and deadly. Most people try to avoid crossing paths with the beasts, but the boaters in this video are not most people. They actually go out and chase these things.

Luckily for them, they ran into the Arapaima, which is one of the largest freshwater fish in the world.

Can you imagine seeing that thing in the river with you? I think I’d lose my mind. I’m glad I live here in America where the arapaima doesn’t slither around in our rivers. I think I might just avoid the water altogether though. You know…just to be safe.
