Can anyone on the list identify this so-called "deep sea fish"?  I am not
connected to the auction in any fashion, but interested in merely
identifying this specimen.

Thank you,

Title of item: >>>>Huge Rare Deep Sea Fish - Taxidermy <<<<


Item Description:  
Deep sea fish?!

Wow, this has never been seen on ebay before! You are bidding for a huge
(almost 3 ft) mysterious stuffed fish. I have no idea what species that is
but it looks to me like a monster from the deep sea. According to the body
shape (snake like, with very small tail fin) and its teeth&nbsp;this is a
formidable predator which lives at the bottom of the sea. The previous owner
could not tell me anything about its origin&nbsp;only that it must be well
over 100 years old. The condition of the fish is surprisingly good
and&nbsp;the fish itself is&nbsp;not fragile at all. Due to its age the fish
is virtually odourless. Do not let this rare opportunity pass!!! This is
your chance to bid for an item that you&nbsp;can only&nbsp;find in museums
if at all.
