Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Friday, 1 February 2019 is Heteropneustes.
Heteropneustes, the airsac catfishes, is a genus of catfishes native to Asia. This genus is the only one in its family.
Their bodies are elongated and compressed with greatly depressed heads. They have long air sac that serve as lungs that extends from the gill chamber. The dorsal fin is short and has no spine. The pectoral fins have an associated venom gland and as a result the fish is considered dangerous. They are oviparous; distinct pairing is possible.
This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:13 UTC on Friday, 1 February 2019.
For the full current version of the article, see Heteropneustes on Wikipedia.
