A man has been happily reunited with his prized fish after he left it in a pink Bangkok taxi. 

 

The owner had hailed cab number 6880 from Chatuchak but exited the vehicle in Klong Toei  leaving his "Channa Barca" snakehead fish in a plastic bag.

 

The owner contacted radio station JS 100 who posted online that the owner was desperate to get it back as it was worth a small fortune. 

 

Ten hours later the drama was over when the owner said the fish - of enormous sentimental value that he called Nanna - had been returned by a local. 

 

No mention was made of who returned it though the taxi driver is often the hero in such stories.

 

Sanook reported that the so-called Barca Snakehead is one of the most beautiful fish in the world and is only found in rivers in Bengal and Assam and some parts of Bangladesh. 

 

It is much prized for its stunning hues and speckled scales and prices can range from 80,000 baht to hundreds of thousands.

He put it in a plastic bag and carried it around?!

It's a fish which can grow 105 cm, how big was it? You forget? Well ok there are people just forgetting about their baby in the car.

The fish is rare, so thats why it cost that much. Happily they told now, so everyone is going to fish now on this one, to sell.

However you need to go to India, Bangladesh to catch it.

You can always eat it , as it is an excellent food fish.
