A legendary boiling river has been found in the Amazon forest. While there are no cichlids in this river, or probably any fish whatsoever, the story is still interesting. Despite the legends of a boiling river deep in the Amazon jungle, scientists believed that there wasn’t volcanic activity in the region to create high temperature waters. It is believed that the hot water is the result of cracks and faults that allow heated water to rise from deep in the earth’s crust.
