Commonly known as the "talking cats" due to
the noise they make when removed from the water. Confused
sometimes with the Auchenipteridae family ( Wood cats
) but they possess a row of scutes along their sides which
is characteristic of this group.
Mostly nocturnal and very secretive and
range from the diminutive Physopyxis lyra to the
large and friendly Oxydodorus niger.
