A massive stingray, measuring 8 feet across and 14 feet long, could be the largest freshwater fish ever found.

Scientists working on Jeff Corwin’s show “Ocean Mysteries” said they caught the giant stingray in Thailand, according to a post on Corwin’s Facebook page.

Researchers estimated she weighed between 600 and 800 pounds.

Based on her size, the stingray was believed to be between 35 and 40 years old.

According to National Geographic, the stingray was pregnant with two fetuses, the Huffington Post reported.

She was released back into the wild unharmed, Corwin posted.
