The Golden Cave Catfish (Clarias cavernicola) is a critically endangered species of Catfish.  This species is air-breathing. They are only known to live in Aigamas cave (Namibia). They appear pinkish white in color because a lack of pigment and look generally like an eel; They typically grow to about 16cm in length. Most inidividual specimens show virtually no sign of eyes on the surface of their head, and others appear to have eyes, but they are greatly obscured by flesh. Because this, this species is effectively blind. As far as their diet goes, they are bottom-feeders; They consume only algea and micro-organisms. 


In May of 2015, scientists found the Golden Cave Catfish to essentially climb completely vertical walls in order to reach food.
