Description

The Bagarius suchus species is easily told apart from congeners by presence of dark blotches on the flanks and the flat slender look.

Suchus: from the Ancient Greek σοῦχος (soukhos), meaning ‘crocodile’, in reference to the species’ appearance.

An obligate predator feeding on smaller fishes, amphibians, crustaceans and other invertebrates in nature but in most cases adapting well to dead alternatives in captivity.

Young fish can be offered chironomid larvae (bloodworm), small earthworms, chopped prawn and suchlike while adults will accept strips of fish flesh, whole prawns/shrimp, mussels, live river shrimp, larger earthworms, etc.
