Strange New Fish in Cayman Islands

"A strange looking sea creature washed up on the shores of Cayman Brac this weekend. Layman Scott found the fish while walking along the beach early Sunday morning. It is roughly thirty inches long, more than half of which is a long, eel-like tail attached to a fish body. It has pale pink scales, pectoral fins, a dorsal fin and a small feathery fin on its belly."

I'm not so sure about this one... Why are the only photos of this in black and white? The only reason I can see to remove visual information (i.e. color) from a photo like this would be to try to hide something.

New Species of Fish?

I don't think so here's my solution.
