Auchenipteridae

 

 

Auchenipteridae = ( ow ken ip TARE id dee )

Contains some of the more secretive members of the Siluriformes. This family is the only one to undergo internal insemination and fertilisation. Known as Driftwood or Wood Cats owing to their habit of hiding in hollow logs during the day.
                                                  
Confused sometimes with the members of the Doradidae family but lack the lateral bony scutes.
