The polys at 0:51 are Polypterus endlicheri since they are a lower jaw species. Delhezi is an upper jaw species where the upper jaw is longer.

Nice polys! Are they wild caught?
I dont know they are WC or not. Yes, you are right both have lower jaws are longer than upper. So my corrected polypterus list is;

Polypterus endlicheri ~ 25cm/ 25cm / 15cm
Polypterus ornatipinnis ~28cm
Polypterus senegalus~28cm

what about color and head position differences? is it about endlicheri subspecies like kongo / guinea acc. to catch zone?
