( CLAAR O Tee Iday)
Was previously a sub-family of the Bagridae, this group
of catfishes has now been elevated to its own family status.
All from the African continent with the Giraffe or the
African Big Eye Catfish being the more common species.
Sizes vary in this family from the larger Chrysichthys
to the smaller Lophiobagrus genera of Lake Tanganika.
