    Looks pretty ugly. Is there a photo?

    I thought it was kinda cute, yes a color photo would be much better.

    There doesn't seem to be, and I wouldn't count on one until they find a live specimen.

    Imagine the immasculation those scientists must have felt, not knowing anything of this animal, then finding some booth in Laos selling a dead one, presumably to be eaten...

    Its a funny definition of 'discovered' they have there, being that it was 'found' in a market, and well known enough locally to have a name.

    Apart from slime eels, I find most animals cute.
