Indonesian longfinned eel
The Indonesian longfinned eel (Anguilla malgumora) is an eel in the family Anguillidae. It was described by Johann Jakob Kaup in 1856. It is a tropical eel known from freshwaters in Borneo and Sulawesi, Indonesia; and the Phillipines. The eels spend most of their lives in freshwater, preferring to live under and around rocks in clear, fast-flowing streams, but migrate to the ocean to breed. The Indonesian longfinned eel is the only longfinned eel in Indonesia that is of a plain colouring. Males can reach a maximum total length of 80 centimetres.
