Another fish.

Banded Kokopu caught in a Gambusia trap. All reference books say that individuals can get up to 260 mm in length, but this is unusual.
This fish was photographed in an ice cream container and the nose touched the corner at one end and the tail at the other, across the diagonal. Total length = c.250 mm! This individual has lived in the same pool for nearly 3 years.
