Giant Stingray Found in Cambodia Crown by World's Largest Freshwater Fish By Guinness!

The fish was caught by fishermen in the Stung Treng region of northern Cambodia on June 13, according to GWR.

According to GWR, the ray-breaking ray, is part of the endangered species. Given the Khmer language name, "Borami" meaning "full moon," refers to both his disk-like form and the evening release time.

Dana Lee, a fishery biologist at FISHBIO, was one of the researchers who helped measure the monster, adds GWR.

"The first sighting of a large stingray while being pulled deep was an amazing moment for me," he told GWR.

"Mekong has always been a mythical place in my mind and this creature was almost like a man-made river," he added.
