How much?!
3rd November 2017

A Thai businessman caused a stir when he paid 1.5m Thai baht (£33,578) for a rare 1.15m golden fancy carp, thought to be the largest of its kind in the country.

The 31-year-old, identified only as Bas from Sukhothai, bought it from a local carp farm.

Bas told the Bangkok Post that the five-year-old carp had ‘beautiful colouring’, ‘a fine bodily structure’ and being more than a metre long made it rare in Thailand.
