We collected this young cat in a river near Leticia, Colombia last year. Anyone care to ID it.

Hi There,

 

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you but we think it is an undescribed Heptapterus species which was discovered in 2006. I will get back to you when I get any further information.

Hi There,

 

We have come to the conclusion that it is Myoglanis sp. 'Peru' from the Heptapteridae family. This species is still undescribed.
