Photo: Giant River Stingrays Found Near Thai City



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.
