** The candiru; a parasitic catfish that normally targets the gills of other fish, but has been known to embed itself in the genitals of luckless humans relieving themselves in South American waterways [[note]]while the show treats this as true, other experts disagree, and the story told of the candiru that was allegedly extracted from a man's penis is inconsistent as it shows an intact fish that it claims was the one removed while simultaneously claiming that the fish had to be cut to pieces by a surgeon in order to get it out[[/note]].

* GoneHorriblyRight: Some of the strangest and most disturbing situations are actually the result of introduced species that adapt far better than expected to a new environment -- the pacu, the snakehead, and numerous others are fairly harmless in their native habitat, but removed from their normal food sources and predators, their behavior and threat level alter dramatically, in some cases going from the bottom of the food chain to apex predator. The snakeheads seem to be causing little trouble as of 2015, but the pacu, on the other hand....

** Don't place dead bodies into a river occupied by goonch catfish. They will gain a taste for human flesh.

** Don't place dead bodies into a river occupied by goonch or sareng/tapah catfish. They will gain a taste for human flesh.



** Do not fish for a sareng/tapah catfish in India or the Hindu gods will [[BlessedWithSuck curse your fishing trip with suck.]] Likewise, do not bathe in their habitat or they will go after you.



** The sareng catfish is so revered by the Hindus that it is said anyone who tries to catch it is doomed to fail. Even Jeremy falls prey to the curse. At least until the last episode.

** Then there was the sareng/tapah, the goonch's equally ferocious cousin. He failed to catch one in season four, something Jeremy thinks might be attributed to its holy nature, as anyone who tries to catch it will be cursed with bad luck. Come the final episode five years later and he finally lands it.
