Tyson, who is the only other one besides me, who went to the lake (the upper part only), had photos of dead fishes and specimens which were actually in poor condition as he carried them always around with him, also while I was with him and Jean-Pierre Gosse at the Museum in Bruxelles. And one can be seen the photos on the work he done with Sven.
