Interesting Facts about the Bullhead

The bullhead is a type of freshwater fish that can be found in many areas of Europe, most commonly in rivers. You can also find these in small streams or shores of lakes, always waters that are cold, clear, and normally fast moving. These fish are normally between 6 and 8cm long and are light brown in color with a bunch of small darker brown spots and marks.

  • When these fish rest flat down on a flat surface, its pectoral fins spread out which look a lot like little wings
