"Three days ago we entered the water a few hundred yards from the source of the Cuito river, which is the primary source of the Okavango Delta. Located in the highlands of Angola, it is an extremely remote area and has seen very little scientific study.

Ichthyologist Paul Skelton is on the expedition to try and get a peek into this unique biological system. I’ve asked him to pick three of the most interesting specimens he’s found so far, and to tell us what he is most excited about." “This little chap is a bubble nester and is found in the very dense marsh. The individual in the photograph is particularly well-highlighted, possibly more so than I've seen lower down in the system. So, is it the same species?”
