|The Bagarius of Thailand|
|by Nonn Panitvong|
hanks to the great work from Dr. Ng Heok Hee and Dr. Maurice Kottelat, we can now identify all 4 of our Bagarius with a name. The B. sp. Salween is still a work in progress and I sure hope they will sort it soon. So here is how to tell them apart. After posting the new Thai fish (Kae) article, there are some people who can't identify the difference's between each type. Today, I got the photo's from Dr. Chawalit Wittawittayon, which is a fish that puts a straight set. It makes it easier to see the comparison points than the last time.
1. Bagarius lica has a much larger and relatively shorter head than Bagarius sp. "Salween".
