Feeding a child is difficult as it is

What about feeding an animal?

This must be the craziest of all things

Having Feeding Bottle Sucking Fish!

You have heard of people bottle feeding the bear, a monkey, a tiger or lion cub . . . but a fish?

You have to take your hat off to the Chinese. They cross breed Koi with   some Amazon fish and produce this feeding bottle sucking fish.

They start training them to take bottle feedings at 1 year old. By 2 they are on exhibition in places like parks etc. It is such a novelty . . . almost like magic!

 Each feeding bottle is sold for RMB10. Most parents and young couples are happy to pay to feed the fish.

It is claimed that they suckle like babies and are very cute.

I wonder what else they’ll teach the fish to suck next!!!
