The Elephant Nose (Gnathonemus petersii) fish is a freshwater fish from African that sports a highly unusual look.
They go by a number of additional common names, but the most popular are the Long-Nosed Elephant Fish, Ubangi mormyrid, Elephant Fish, and Peters’ Elephant Nose Fish (named after the individual who discovered them).
These fish can be found in a multitude of rivers in Africa, but the most largest are the Niger River, Chari River, and Ogun River.
These waters are usually quite murky with low visibility. This is partly caused by the riverbed and debris that collect in the rivers, but also due to the very mild current they have.
