Those are pretty good-sized tarpon. I don't think I'd put my hand in its mouth


(for those reading along, tarpon are game fish, they do get quite a bit larger than these)

Wow! I would have a very very difficult time feeding that tarpon by hand!
Would want to have a hook in it!

This type of fish has very small teeth that is more like sandpaper according to information I have read.
