A giant gourami fish named Gary has ballooned to 8.8lb after feasting on Kit Kats.
The fat fish baffled handler Rebecca Carter after rejecting normal food, until she found out that his former owners only fed him chocolate covered wafers. Ms Carter said, “I’ve never heard of a fish being fed chocolate, let alone brought up entirely on the stuff.”
The Asian freshwater fish, considered a delicacy in Indonesia, is now on a different diet at the Sea Life London Aquarium, although crushed pieces of Kit Kat still had to be hidden inside pieces of fruit to get him to eat.
Inspired by his healthier diet, Gary is now hoping to kick his sex and gambling addictions.
