Youtuber The Fish Whisperer shows us what happens when he tries to pet the catfish out back of his house. Turns out even fish love affections.
Fish in cold water seem to be more hungry than those that approach the shore in warmer months. When the host feeds the catfish they seem eager for more.
The real surprise comes when he reaches out to pet the fish. Instead of the catfish retreating, they seem to really enjoy the affection. Perhaps it’s just the warmth of his hand, or maybe they really like him.
