And you thought Syfy's Mega Piranha was just fiction: Check out this video of a real-life man-eating megafish, below.

This toothy giant fish was caught on Animal Planet's River Monsters show:

The "Demon Fish," better known as the goliath tigerfish, is Africa's equivalent of the piranha, only much, much bigger. Its double-hinged jaw full of crocodile teeth is truly the stuff of nightmares.

Who's the sushi now?

River Monsters airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on Animal Planet.
