CURIOSITIES OF Bagre
Although most of its meaning lies in negative adjectives, the word catfish also refers to those people who are very smart and have the ability to get out of really embarrassing situations easily and without causing emotional wounds.
These meanings are attributed to the fact that the freshwater fish has the ability to defend itself from other species by quickly pricking its sting, through which it secretes venom.
