Watch rare footage of a shapeshifting eel with 'remarkably full tummy' swimming in the deep sea

Great video! I'm not an icthyologist but this looks to me like Saccopharynx sp. rather than the more familiar Eurypharynx pelecanoides. I'm not sure if E.p. has a distensible abdomen. In the video mentioned it seemed to be using its balooning "pouch" to capture a small shrimp or the like.
