Extremely rare, bright-yellow catfish caught in the Netherlands....

A typical catfish is gray or brown. One in a million, an individual may have leucism and be pale yellow instead. Often confused with albinism, leucism is a genetic mutation resulting in a partial loss of pigmentation and does not affect the eyes. That’s enough scientific information. Let’s say hi to an amazing leucism catfish that looks exactly like a giant swimming banana!

Martin Glatz, a professional angler in the Netherlands, drove his boat to fish with his twin brother Oliver on a lake. Suddenly, a bright-yellow catfish flopped out of the water and into their boat. It looked like an enormous, writhing banana with gills and made the Glatz twins surprised and excited.
