MuseumEdit

An information board in the aquarium will provide information about this fish.

"Dorado means "golden" in Spanish. As the name would indicate, these fish are gold and have black dots. They look like salmon but are very toothy, carnivorous, and related to piranha. They're such ferocious fish that other fish regularly flee from them, fearful of becoming a snack. Their ferocious natures and power make them a prize catch among anglers."

In real lifeEdit

DoradoIRL

The Golden Dorado is a large river fish that lives in central and east-central South America. They live in warm freshwater habitats in southern Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Bolivia and northern Argentina, where they’re found in the river basins of the Paraguay, Uruguay, Chapare and Mamoré, and the drainage of the Lagoa dos Patos. The dorado is considered an endangered species in Paraguay and therefore a 5-year fishing ban is currently on effect there.

Golden Dorados are piscivores, eating a wide variety of prey fish. One of the dorado’s favorite prey are sabalo, a type of schooling fish typically 1–4 kg (2–9 lb) in weight.
