385lb stingray from Thai river

Dr Zeb Hogan endured a mammoth hour long fight before finally beating this 385lb-plus stingray from the Mae Klong River in western Thailand.

The presenter of National Geographic’s Monster Fish television programme caught the huge specimen, which measured 1.8m in width and almost 4m in length, while filming with the Fishsiam guiding company.

Rick Humphreys, owner of Fishsiam, said: “We have always estimated weights of the stingrays due to fish care concerns, but on this occasion we built a custom rig to weigh the stingray accurately.”
