Most people associate catfish with either really good fishing or really good eating. These delicious creatures never seem to have a care in the world. If you judge them by their appearance, they look like they’d rather float along lazily in the water than fight to the death over a meal.
Well, apparently this laid-back perception is dead wrong. Catfish aren’t just aggressive — they’re cannibalistic. Check out the madness in the video below.

I can totally understand why that catfish ate the other one. Catfish is delicious, and I don’t think anyone would argue with me about that. Still, if you’re sharing a tank together, that’s a pretty evil move.

While we’re still a few months away from summer, that doesn’t mean that the drought in North America has gone away. In fact, by some estimations, it’s worse than ever.
It’s starting to have some very unexpected effects, especially in parts of Mexico. The prolonged dry spell is causing ancient churches to rise from the dead.
The latest side effect of the drought has to do with this 16th-century church that normally resides at the bottom of a reservoir that was created by the Benito Juarez Dam in 1962. Because water levels in the reservoir are now 40 percent lower, the structure has reappeared.
South of the Benito Juarez Dam, in the Mexican state of Chiapas, is another submerged church that’s made its way back to the surface. It’s the Temple of Santiago, also known as the Temple of Quechula.
The severe drought also caused the water level at the Nezahualcoyotl Reservoir to drop more than 80 feet, revealing the remains of this 16th-century church.
While it’s not a good sign that water levels are so low, local fishermen are making the best of the situation by ferrying tourists to see these structures.
The happy faces of tourists are eerie when juxtaposed with the awful implications of these issues.

Well, that’s a beautifully disturbing phenomenon. While this year’s rainy season should temporarily help with the drought, I doubt that it will have any lasting impact.
