That's a white-shouldered whiptail, it's one of the dreaded fish I want to avoid when I fish with live prawns. But as a pet, I would gladly enjoy seeing it shred the pieces of prawn meat I would feed it. :lol:

It's been a long time since I took one back to eat, my vague recollection tells me it wasn't very good. Maybe just my bad cooking. :p
