Synodontis ID?

Two days after I got him this guy fell on the floor, flopped his way under the tank and I had to pick him up with my hand. He's doing fine, I eventually had my hand looked at and needed a few (3) stitches. So be careful picking up those Syn cats with your hands, ok?

He seems to have a longer snout than most Syn cats I have seen, and certainly longer in the nose than my Euptera... He's about 7-9 inches long and isn't shy like the Syn Euptera I have in my other tank.

Here's some photos, hopefully someone can help ID him? I thought maybe Synodontis longirostris?

I'm not an expert, but it looks like a hybrid of S. decorus and something else. Try posting the pics on planetcatfish for a better-informed opinion than mine.

I agree, I think it is a mix of S. Decorous and S. Multipunctatus. I think they call these Jaguar Synodontis but don't quote me on that.
