Description

This eel or long fish was seen while we were constructing our house. We used water from the stream behind the property to build bricks and the foundation, in so doing they made a nice sandy spot which this fish was sunning itself in. I took video with my gopro and took a screenshot for the pictures. I actually have more shots of this from under the water but I got my camera a little to close and it is blurry. You can see the forked nose though. I'd really like someone to identify it if possible.
