  Doradidae
Doradidae

 

Doradidae = ( door ADD id dee )  

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.
