This catfish may want to consider portion control after it nearly died by eating too much at once.

Boaters in Lake Grapevine, Texas discovered a catfish that looked like it was on its last fins. It had apparently spotted a turtle and attempted to swallow it, thinking it’d make for an easy meal.

It didn’t.

Instead of turtle soup, the catfish ended up with its mouth blocked from a turtle that just wouldn’t go down.

The group on the boat were able to pull the catfish out of the water, free the turtle from its mouth and release them both back into the water.


There’s no word if the catfish learned from its mistake or went right back to trying to eat the turtle
