For many years I have been studying the breed of the "Hohe Segelflossler" Pt. altum.

It is a real Altum from the Rio Atabapo / Rio Inirida and the tributaries of the upper Rio Orinoco.

These Altums show a beautiful bend in the nose with a lot of red in the head area and already have a wingspan of 32 cm at just 15 months. Such a crossing is only possible under real Altums.
