Anglers tend to exaggerate when it comes to the size of fish.
“The thing weighed a ton,” sometimes gets thrown around with a lot of fishermen.
But a group of fishermen in northern Peru really did catch a one-ton stingray that measured 26 feet long.
According to The National Geographic, the stingray reached 6.5 feet and 790 pounds.
That’s a far cry from what took a crane to hoist up in the video.
Just imagine what that stingray looked like moving in the water—and the tail that it used for protection.
