Fact of the Day: Kitty Fish

The Catfish gets its name from the "whiskers" on it's face that resemble that of a housecat. However they are not really whiskers, but barbels. They have taste-buds which are vital to finding food in murky water.

Tastebuds in whiskers, hmm who knew. But the cat would still eat it, no matter if it tries to pretend to be one haha
