The Siamese fighting fish, Betta splendens, are native to Thailand where their breeding began more than 600 years ago. Their name comes from their aggressive nature making it impossible for two males to cohabit. This bellicose character is exploited in its country of origin, where fights are organized for gambling purposes.
