Siamese fighting fish has been named Thailand’s national aquatic animal.

Known in the Western World as a betta fish, the underwater brawler is popular in home aquariums for its iridescent body and many-hued tail.

According to an official statement, cabinet of Thailand approved a proposal for the fighting fish to be the national fish, citing its historical and cultural significance.

Children looking for the fish today will mostly see it in pet shops
