This is a brown ghost knife fish, Apteronotus leptorhynchus, which lives in the Amazon River Basin (drawing Dr. Mary Hagedorn Ph.D. thesis). It is active at night, and uses an electric sense to navigate in the river and to communicate with other weakly electric fish. My Ph.D. thesis research focused on the regularity of the electric rhythm produced by this fish.
